Is there a way to limit the size of the Trash?
I'd like to have a way to auto-deleted item in the basket, based upon the time they come in (oldest to be deleted first)...
This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.
You may be able to do this with a Folder Action. apple.blogoverflow.com/2012/06/folder-actions-tutorial-automation-meet-the-filesystem/
when new item is added, count items in folder, if number of items is greater than threshhold, delete oldest one.
This requires some knowledge of how the trash works...Something about the .Trashes hidden folders.
