    Let's talk TRASH!
    I have tons of things in my trashcan hundreds of MB's, just how much trash is to much before I should empty it? Does leaving it there cause problems? I'm always worried, I just may want to keep that image or junkmail or what ever, I guess I can call myself a pacrat..I mean "Macrat" lol
    I started using PS from finding this forum and all the help I have gotten here thru the years is immeasurable
    thank you MacForums and all it's members

    i always clear mine out when i am done purging stuff. it still takes up room on your hard drive if it stays in your trash.

    Yeah, really... what is the point of putting it in the Trash if you aren't going to empty it??
    Why not just make a folder and call it "Old Stuff" or something and just keep it there?

    I empty it like once a month. It's normal for me to have at least 5GB in the trash. I do the same for my bedroom too.
