44,000 items are in my trash and its locking the computer up to the point i am getting really pissed off. I have a 2011 macbook pro with 10.6.7 osx. I have had to hard start the computer 3 times today and I know this is bad for my hard drives. I have no idea how 44,000 items got into trash I have not been deleteing that much in just 3 hours or so. How can i delete the files and then limit the trash can to 100mb. I am god D*** there should be a limit to the damn trash can to start with.
