10.3: Use Secure Empty Trash to reclaim hard disk space
Authored by: johnsawyercjs on Mar 13, '05 03:51:12AM

Well, your theory is more likely than one proposed above, that secure delete trashes cache files, since secure delete just writes over and deletes things that are in the Trash, and cache files that aren't in the Trash, are just that--they're not in the Trash, and so they stay put until you drag them there, or OS X deletes them, so emptying the Trash in any fashion shouldn't delete cache files that aren't in the Trash.
