Ok ya really gotta grasp this concept, because it is extremely important. And that concept is the huge difference between a grid like SecondLife, or any other closed Virtual World, like 3rdRock, InWorldz etc... And any Open Sim based VW
On a closed Grid your inventory resides on the grid operators server's. In an Open Sim world, like OSgrid, your inventory resides on your computer. ( and this brings up another point, I will discuss in an upcoming post, Backing Up Your Inventory )
Unlike SL when your Trash folder is getting full, you simply empty it, and the SL server's get rid of the clutter for you automatically. This is not the case in an Open Sim World, there are several steps involved in order to complete the process. ( It took me 2 crash's and 3 try's before I was successful )
The first thing you need to do is find a Wall of Knowledge, like the one located at the Wright Plaza Travel Center. You will notice I have 480 item's in my inventory, about 70 of them are in my trash
You click on the appropriate "semi sphere " Log In To Empty Trash" and you will be prompted to goto the main OSgrid home page and log in, you then select Empty Trash.
