    Hey,

    Once I've emptied the trash, is there any way to get a specific file back from that dumping?

    As long as it is not overwritten, you could use Data Rescue II to scan your hard drive for any file, even if the trash is emptied.

    I think I can save you two, and possibly three steps.

    If it isn't trash, don't put it in the trash.

    (Sorry I just got done reading the 'things I hate about Macs' thread).

    That's for being rude.

    Everyone makes mistakes and this is one.

    AppCleaner put it in the trash, I just clicked accept without checking the files over carefully enough.
