The "Trash Without" allows you delete files (also a group of files/folders) without using the Trash on your hard disk, USB, memory card.
Are you tired of cleaning the Trash of a single large file that you don't exactly need?
Do you need to free up disk space urgently, but you have the files in the Trash, which may not have been deleted?
The "Trash Without" is the fastest and easiest way to delete files/folders without using the Trash.

You can choose one of three ways to delete files/folders without using the Trash:
- Drag & drop files to the application icon in the Dock. Application doesn't necessarily launch.
- Drag & drop files to the application icon in the Toolbar. Application doesn't necessarily launch.
- Select files for deletion using the dialog box.

Warning: The "Trash Without" deletes original file instead of alias!

Product Doesn’t Work

I paid for it, loaded it and it doesn’t work! Nada, nothing. So I gave it a 1 Star. Take this product back to the drawing board, fix the glitches - please!

Won’t start

I’ll revise this review if I am able to get this app to start. Right now, it won’t. Am using 20 inch, early 2008 iMac w/4GB 667 MHx DDR2 SDRAM, OS X 10.9.2, 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo.

Will not delete files moved into trash by other applications.

For example IVI pro will place a file into the trash, but Trash Without can’t intercept and delete the file permanently. Instead the file just sits in the trash and has to be deleted manually.

However if you click on a file in finder and choose to delete it, then Trash Without intercepts the file and removes it permanently.

A shame as I need an app that treats the trashcan like in windows, where files are deleted permanently.
