Display the size of the trash prior to emptying
Authored by: VEGx on Feb 28, '03 10:34:02AM

Except that sometimes you will get an annoying .DS_Store file in it!!!<p>You might want to check for that file first and if it exsist then substract 4K.<p>I mean, it tells the right size of the .Trash, sure, but normally I would not really want to include the .DS_Store files to my calculations. ["I put a 4K text file to the Trash and now it's TWICE the size!!?" kind of a situation.]<p>Just a small correction... so that no one will panic about this 4K "mistake"
