Does anyone know a way to delete items placed in the trash, say, 1 week ago or longer? I don't just wish to empty all items in trash; I wish items to stay in the trash for a few days in case I change my mind. I used to use Compost to do this, but it no longer is supported. I notice that the Mountain Lion Finder has a category "Date Added". Presumably that is the date a file was added to a folder? Can anyone write a simple script that deletes all items in the Trash folder whose date-added exceed N days, where N is any desired number? I would then schedule the script to run every day.
