comment Have Automator add original path to Spotlight Comment for a file when moving to the trash
This looks very helpful in that it shows how to get the path of a file but I am using the Folder Action receives files and folders added to Trash. I already have a step which appends the timestamp and user that deleted the item to the Spotlight comment. How can I append the original path to this comment as a separate step?

comment Which low cost server device is compatible with iOS VPN on demand?
This question may be more on topic at Server Fault (www.serverfault.com), or at least you may get more Cisco people lurking there.

comment Buying a Macbook pro retina 15", RAM or storage?
I'd second this. Only five years ago, 256GB of storage would have seemed plenty and you wouldn't have worried. Not having enough RAM is going to hurt on a daily basis.

-1 - why? What is wrong with this? It worked for me, and it was my question.

@HairOfTheDog - that's right - I've got everything else done already.

@ShaneHsu - I found the Put Back option. It works fine for individual files that were deleted, but not if their parent folder was deleted (and Put Back isn't available for parent folders). Anyway, sometimes I might want to Put Back based on where the file was originally (e.g. I deleted a bunch of files out of a folder in one go and may want to restore only a few of them).
