Free Up That Disk Space - iPhoto
Authored by: hughescr on Jan 20, '11 10:54:30AM

The iPhoto trash is not only not the same as the finder trash, but most people don't know it's even there.

And on top of that, it doesn't work like every other "Trash" out there, in that when you run out of space, it doesn't automatically empty itself. And if you quit iPhoto, the trash is still there, but you can't even see it or access it.

I filed a bug report on this stupid mis-feature in iPhoto about 4 years ago.

Free Up That Disk Space - iPhoto
Authored by: TvE on Jan 22, '11 05:21:40AM

I have *never* seen my Mac OS empty my Trash for me - what I have seen when getting low on free disk space though is a warning popping up alerting me to my problem.

I would consider it rude for an OS to empty my trash behind my back (maybe Winblow$ does it like that I have never examined it but have noticed a setting for how large many % are reserved for the trash or something like thatů
