10.4: More easily identify trashed duplicate files Desktop
Tiger only hintI haven't seen this documented elsewhere and thought it was worth mentioning.

In previous versions of the OS, when you would trash files with identical names, the Finder would simply add copy after the name, making it hard to distinguish which was which. But in Tiger, the Finder replaces the useless copy appendage with the time (shown as Hour-Min-Sec, as seen in the screenshot at right).

Many thanks to the developer who thought about this; it's probably saved me a good couple of files already!

Nice! I'll enjoy that when I start using Tiger in production.
