Hazel not emptying trash or App Sweeping Wed Jul 14, 2021 3:54 pm • by JasonNewton
I've noticed in the past few days that Hazel is not emptying the trash and doesn't offer to remove support files when I drag an application to the trash.

I've tried rebooting to no avail. I'm on Big Sur 11.4.

Any advice appreciated.

Check the logs via Help->View Logs.

Search for a file that is not being emptied and post/email in the relevant log excerpt.

This is the relevant part (I think), in relation to the trash not emptying.

And when I drop an Application in the Bin, I see this in the logs.

I should add that in every other aspect, Hazel works absolutely perfectly. It's just the issue with App Sweep and Trash not automatically deleting (which in my case is 1 hour).

It looks like privacy protections kicking in. Hazel should have prompted you to give it full disk access. If you didn't do that then do the following:

- Launch System Preferences
- Click on Security & Privacy
- Select the Privacy tab
- Go to Full Disk Access.
- Click on the lock in the lower left to allow changes.
- If Hazel is in the list, check it. If not, then add it.

Apologies for the long delay replying. After following your instructions, everything is back to normal.

Thanks again.

There is an issue with this. When I recently rebooted, Hazel lost Full Disk Access again. When I re-added it, it empties the trash but now I have multiple instances of hazel running in the activity monitor.

Hazel or hazelworker? The latter is normal as there is one process per folder.
