Hello @sahostking,

The value entered for this setting corresponds with the age of the file. For instance, if you enter "7", files seven days old or older deleted via File Manager and existing in a user's .trash directory are removed during the daily upcp run. A value of 0 configures the server to purge all files from every user's .trash folder, regardless of age. The following script is available if you want to purge the files manually:

Code:
/usr/local/cpanel/bin/empty_user_trash
This option is documented at:

Tweak Settings - System - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

Thank you.
