amazingly simple to use and does exactly what its supposed to do. we're directly connected to our clients server and use it to send the files direct to the client for print. we're also saving a backup to another machine and sending the files to the client. perfect!!
we were about to buy a â?¬700 software for this purpose, so the guy who mentioned too expensive "think twice". we will be buying our licences just before the 30 day trial runs out.

This app has a lot going for it, and could be useful in many scenarios beyond trash management. But to stick to that topic for a moment, the trouble with most timed trash deleters is that they are defeated if you indulge in that most satisfying action, emptying the trash manually (there, gone, whoosh!). Rubbish is a sophisticated exception: it transparently intercepts trashed items on selected volumes, and hives them away for a specified time. But is still suffers from the other defect, that *all* of that stuff is sticking around taking up space, not just the 0.01% you might possibly want back.

The strength and the weakness of Trash Later X is that it requires you to decide at the point of trashing whether or not there is a risk that youâ??ll need to recover a file. Anything you â??trashâ?? to a monitored holding folder is deleted (or moved or trashed) after a specified time. Of course there is nothing to stop you maintaining a holding folder manually: all that TLX really adds is the convenience of having it monitored and cleaned out at as items expire. If you actually prefer to just have the trash emptied for you, then TLX can do that too.

Where TLX really scores over the opposition is that it is not a permanently running process. You tell it how often you want things checked, and a helper app is briefly run at intervals. Also, the fact that expired items can be transferred to another folder, with or without an alert, opens up all sorts of other file management possibilities. It can even be used as maintenance tool, clearing out caches etc.

I don't really have a need for this one, but it seems to work great.
