An AppleScript to create a size-limited trash can
Authored by: BMarsh on Nov 07, '06 12:29:57PM

many people I've done support, or training for empty the trash without thinking as it is, losing data sometimes.

for some users, this might actually reduce the risk to some extent.
and if you limit it to 5-10% of the total HD space, on most drives sold in the last 3 years, this is still at least 4+ GB in most cases.

I'll stick to my own method which is manual, emptying the trash once every few days unless I need the space back immediately. Gives me a couple of days to realize if I actually needed something or not.
But I'm keeping this on file, especially for recent windows converts.
