Compost 1.8.5 reviewDownload
Compost is a preference pane and daemon that allows per-user limits on the maximum size and age of trash contents.
Compost is a preference pane and daemon that allows per-user limits on the maximum size and age of trash contents. It will incrementally purge files to meet those restrictions.
Also included are a contextual menu plugin that allows immediate deletion and emptying of the trash on specific volumes, and a replacement for the stock trash Get Info window that actually provides useful information.
Compost lets you set a time limit on your trash, cap its size, and maintain a minimum amount of space.
Here are some key features of "Compost":
Security for your sensitive files
Change settings both globally and for each disk
Empty Individual Cans:
A contextual menu item to empty the trash on a single disk (and optionally unmount it)
A contextual menu item to immediately erase files, bypassing the trash
A replacement Get Info window for the trash can that tells you how much space is taken up overall and on each disk.
If you're running an unregistered copy you may see a brief reminder that looks like the brightness and volume status displays pop up when Compost deletes items according to your settings. After running for 5 hours, a persistent reminder will appear in the lower-right corner.
Corrected a problem building the empty and empty/eject submenus for non-English users.
