Disclaimer: Although Spool File Deleter seems to work fine, it is distributed "as is". Use at your own risk. So there.
Spool File Deleter is a small utility that deletes all of the files in your Print Monitor Documents folder. This is occasionally handy if you are having problems printing and PM doesn't delete the files itself. Although you can open the folder and drag the files out yourself, sometimes PM gets to them before you do and starts printing them again. This is also useful in a lab environment where you might want the files to be deleted at startup. It does not yet work with the newer desktop printers but I may add this functionality in the future.
The icon for the program is misleading - the files are deleted, not moved to the trash. I was planning on doing it that way, but laziness prevailed.
If you have any questions, comments, (constructive) criticism, or bug reports please let me know. You can contact me at the address(es) below.
