    I often transfer many files from my Mac to a flash drive. Instead of having to manually delete them from my Mac after a transfer, is there a way for it to automatically delete the files afterwards?

    Sort of like Unarchiver. It has an option after extracting files to delete the original compressed file

    Well you could move the files rather than copying them to the Flash drive. Would that suffice? If transferring via Finder when you're dragging files between two Finder windows if you hold down the command key while dragging and release the mouse button it'll move the files rather than copying them to the Flash drive.
