I have a question about the applications folders. Before a portion of my hard-drive crashed and I had to replace it and reinstall software, I was sure that my applications showed up in BOTH the applications folder in the side bar and the applications in my home folder. However, I just noticed that is no longer the case. They show up in the sidebar, but the home folder's application folder shows up empty.
Shouldn't these be the same? What are the consequences of the home folder's application folder being empty?

The Applications folder in your Home folder (~/Applications) and the main Applications folder (/Applications) are different. Apps in /Applications are available to all users, but those in ~/Applications are for you alone.
The one in your sidebar is the main one, /Applications. You can make an alias to /Applications in your home folder as well, if you want.
[This is not a PowerBook question. It should be moved to Mac OS X - Operating System]

Sorry for posting in the wrong section. Is there a way for me to move the thread to the correct location?
