Thanks Paul, I like your thinking. Unfortunately that isn't going to work
in this case. My Internal HD is overflowing and the last thing I need to do
is copy a couple of dozen large (>6 GB) folders across. I'm scripting (for
self use) a little utility to search a couple of my backup HDs to see if
I've got quadruplicates of anything and if so, to Trash one copy. I want to
Trash so I can do one last double check before I empty it. Then I should be
able to Trash some of my old large project folders off my internal HD
knowing that I've got multiple copies elsewhere.

Yes I know HDs are cheap, but not so SSDs, but still I need to buy a bigger
one, but I need the free space NOW! Thankfully I've figured it out.

Can you comment on revDeleteFolder, is that instantly nuking for you?
