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
Alexander

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.

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.
