Review by Doc DSJ

Waste of money - Does not empty files in trash any better than the OS does. I was hoping that this would help delte .inProgress files from my Time Machine, but this software did not help. In case you're think about it, don't ever put .inProgress files into the trash! Can't ever get rid of them, really annoying.
