A few weeks back I released TRASHER 3 to coincide with the new features in Pro Tools 2018.1 such as Pro Tools Presets and full implementation of Track Presets. The biggest issue was that I did not have any representation for when a function was in action. So this build is mainly a maintenance release. A progress bar is now added along with buttons to tick or untick all the boxes in the main home tab. There is also a bit of code cleanup and optimization. The UI has been slightly modified a bit as well for the changes.
Avid released Pro Tools 2018.1, with quite a few new features added. I decided to update TRASHER in order catch all the new settings and files. For many reasons, I ultimately decided to rewrite the entire application and go for macOS while I was at it.. I made some other changes internally such as backing up Plug-in Settings for instance is now "smarter". It will cycle through the folder recursively (folder by folder, file by file) and compare names. If a file name matches in an existing folder during a backup or restore, it will replace the file. Otherwise no files are at risk of being lost through a folder dump for example. Anything and everything being replaced or trashed is sent to the recycle bin, so it is recoverable.
Trasher was created to assist Windows Pro Tools users in a variety of functions. To speed up the process of deleting Dae and Pro Tools prefs, along with the databases for purposes of troubleshooting were the original. More features have been added over time to help with or speed up other processes. Functions like opening Plugin Folders to move plugins or backing up Plugin Settings to move to other computers and drives, as well as backing up and restoring other functions which are common place procedures.
