No Trash allows you to remove files directly, bypass the trashing step and free your hard disk, USB, memory card space.

* Features

- Right click on any file(s) or folder(s) you would like to remove and select "Remove with No Trash" or "Services -> Remove with No Trash"
- Drag and drop the files to the No Trash window to remove them

- Supports dragging files to the No Trash dock icon or app icon
- You can preview a file by selecting it in the file list and pressing the space key
- You can customize No Trash behavior in the Preferences

Warning: No Trash may remove the original file instead of alias! It is highly recommended that your turn on Time Machine and backup your important documents.

I tried it and moved on - I tried “No Trash” after giving up on "AppDelete Lite". Unfortunately, “No Trash” wasn’t any better, so I moved on to “FileShredder”. I went no further. FileShredder was the deleting app I had been looking for, and I have no hesitation in reommending it.

Review by stevelawson

Works fine for me but there needs to be a shortcut key - Having to drill down to Services, then confirm, then delete is really slow. It does work for me and has saved me a bundle of disk space that otherwise would be sucked up by Trash. If No Trash is opened in the Dock it would seem like adding a shortcut key combo would be easy.

Review by repo man

had to force quit - I was trying to delete a thousand files. The progam gave me an error dialog that ran off the bottom of the screen, would not scroll and therefore placed the OK button far off screen. Had to force quit the program. Might be great for smaller jobs, but needs more extensive testing.
