I just read the article about the python command line tool Autotrash
(written by Ronan on Ghacks, here is the homepage
of the script.) which as the name implies automatically deletes the trash based on criteria like remaining disk space, deletion date and regular expressions.
I tried to find a Windows program that would offer a similar functionality but could not find one. What I'm looking for is a program that would automatically deleted the trash based on rules that the user can define.
A rule could be set to delete all files in the recycle bin that have been there for more than a week, or delete all files if the disk space gets to low or delete files that are not of the type doc or text.
It would be great if the program could be scheduled in the Windows Task Manager so that it could be run on a regular basis.
Maybe such a program exists, if it does I would love to hear about it.
