Auto Delete Files in your Trash

So you have been getting the popups lately, huh!

This is very annoying when you already know the reason and solution for this. Which is Empty your Trash regularly.

What if I told you that you won’t have to manually empty your trash from this day forward? Yes, that’s possible. MAC can do it for you.

Well, there is a feature that enables your MAC to empty the Trash every 30 days AUTOMATICALLY! Wonderful, isn’t it! But the catch is that this feature is disabled by Default and has to be enabled, and you have to know how to enable it. Let’s get to it.

How to automatically empty Trash on my MAC

The first thing you need to do is open the Finder App. Look for the following icon on your Dock or search using the Spotlight Search.

Once the Finder App is open click on the Finder Menu from the Top Menu

Click on the Preferences from the Dropdown menu or Press Command (⌘) + Comma to open the Finder’s Preferences Window

On the Finder’s Preferences window click on the Advanced Tab

On the Advanced Tab you’ll notice a Checkbox option “Remove items from the Trash after 30 days“. Check it.

This option is Disabled by default. Once enabled, you won’t have to worry about Deleting files from your Trash ever again. Your MAC will empty the Trash every 30 days Automatically.

Just few clicks and you are set for life. No wore bugging popups about clearing your disk to have more space.
