    G'day and welcome to the forums. Shame it is under such duress for you.

    There are two Library files, one under Computer which contains OS files, and one under Home which contains personal settings, screensavers, downloads, documents etc. Unless you know what you actually did , and it sounds like you have removed the Home file, Dad looks like being up for a complete system re-install, unless he has an external drive backed up with SuperDuper or similar.

    Now you can understand why he is not a happy chappy.

    There are at least 3 Library folders. The two mentioned above, and another one in the System Folder. There would be more if there are more users. Each user will have one. I don't know of any files named Library. I tried Spotlight, that worthless piece of dung, and it did not turn up any files, but, neither did it find any of the 3 Library folders.
