    Hi all,
    In Tiger Get info. gives me individual data pages on the items in the trash.
    How to get a sum total of the space occupied by multiple files in there without
    arithmetic?

    Cheers

    Same as in any other folder.

    Select all the files (Command-A) and then hit Command-Option-i to give a “get info” window on the multiple files.

    Of course,
    but not on my Tiger OS!

    I’m not sure what’s wrong with your system. (I just tried it on a Leopard system and a Tiger system and got the same results in each.)

    What happens when you do that? It opens individual get-info windows for each item? But it doesn’t do that when you do the same thing in non-trash folders?

    I get the same behavior in the trash as I do in any other folder so I’m not sure what to tell you. It could be some 3rd-party software or drivers, but I couldn’t begin to guess what might have messed that up.

    Correct

    Thanks Jeff,
    It’s been like that from the start, iMac G5 OS10.4.10, normal apps & FCP Studio2.
    Go figure.

    Cheers
