    Where did my .trash go?
    I think I might have deleted my .trash folder. How do I fix/make another?
    thanks

    Specs:
    MacBook Pro | iMac(2.1 G5) | MacBook(2.16 C2D) | MacMini (1.67 CD) | iPhone 4 | iPad (3rd Gen)
    Restart should do the trick.

    No I actually deleted this. Mac support says I need to reinstall os to get the .trash back

    I found this http://www.thexlab.com/faqs/trash.html
    Do you think I should do it?

    It looks like the terminal trick above will do the trick. Does anyone advise against it?

    Specs:
    3.4 Ghz i7 27 in iMac (2012), 3.4 Ghz i7 MacBook Pro (2015), iPad Pro (2014), iPhone 6+
    I'm no terminal expert, but this looks pretty strait forward. The worst that can happen is you have to do a reinstall of the OS, which is not that big of a deal.
