    Not able to find any way to remove a particular item from Trash

    I was a windows user but now using Mac OS X. After compairing the Trash with Recycle bin of windows OS, I found that trash doesn't allow you to delete a particular item whereas you can do the same through recyle bin. Is it possible to add the same functionality in MAC as well? If yes then how? Kindly guide me.

    You can employ this functionality through "Supercan" Application which is a free Mac App. It sync with Trash and thus shows all the files which are sent to it. Now you can delete all or a particular item without any issue. Supercan also supports the File Shredding facility which means you can delete any item permanently. In other words, you can say that the deleted items can't be recovered again by any means. Have a look at the below given screen which shows all the items which are stored in Trash. Either you can select one or multiple file for deletion. To delete, click on "Shred" button.
