How Big Is Your Trash?

You can find out how much disk space your Trash folder is using in a variety of ways. One is to open the Trash folder from the Dock, and without selecting any file use Command+I to bring up the Info window. This will show you the size of the Trash, though it may take a minute to calculate it if you have a lot in there.

    Nearly 50,000 files. How it got this huge, who the heck knows. I’ve been emptying trash for an hour–45K files to go.
