Hey guys, I'm kinda worried because the other day I accidentally dragged my Documents folder from the Mac Dock into a the Safari browser (I don't even remember how on earth I accomplished that >_<
Anyways it probably sounds like a really stupid question, I'm not really computer savy or anything. But does that mean any of my documents have been somehow put on the net or something that people can access. Or is that impossible? Because I didn't mean to drag the folder on the browser. Thanks for the help

No, definitely not. You just moved your documents folder off the dock.


Everyone hates cliffhanger endings because..

Found my advice useful? Use the reputation button in the upper-right corner of my post!

Ok fewf, thanks. Cause when I released the button it looked like the folder slid back down into it's original place on the dock and it's still there.

If you ever do zap it off the dock by accident, open up the hard drive and go to users and drag the documents folder back to the dock.

The Dock only contains aliases, or shortcuts. Originals all in the hard drive under Applications, Downloads, Documents etc.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
