Force Empty Trash for Mac

By Macmaps.com Free

Developer's Description

This Applescript application forces the boot hard drive's trash to be emptied using administrative password access (the same as is used to install applications.
Two known bugs: 1. It does not work on items trashed from the non-boot drive. 2. It will not make the icon change on the trashcan after it has been emptied. Click on the trashcan to verify the file has been removed.
