    heya,

    since i installed snow leopard the default action for the trash has become secure erase. does anyone know how to change it back to normal erase as the secure erase is very slow and not always convenient.

    Cheers

    Open Trash.

    Then Finder > Preferences > Uncheck "Empty Trash securely"
