    hi guys i have this nagging problem... everytime i boot up my mac from shutdown my trash always has this "recovered files" folder. it contains files from the app growl.

    i didnt like growl and i just trashed it. although i still see it in system preferences.

    i have two questions?

    1. how can i permamnantly remove the stubborn "recovered files" folder
    2. how can i remove growl in system preferences... its not in the applications part since i trashed it already.

    thanks

    I'm planning on trashing Growl too. So, were you able to remove it from system preferences?

    yup, think of it as a "feature". but if you really really want to automatically remove those files on start-up, you may want to check RecoverTrasher , it's a script, which is supposed to (haven't tried it, why bother? :)) to automatically delete recovered files on boot-up.
