Hi again !


Mac OS X allows you to automatically run shell scripts at logout. Would you want to delete the swap files, put them into an encrypted folder or volume, a script can do this for you.


Also, it would be necessary to determine how much data gets written into the swap files, when, under which conditions... More information about how Mac OS X handles memory and such files can be found on the ADC website.
