    Recovered Files in trash
    Here's a quick question. How come everytime I reboot my iMac, when it completes the reboot, I always have a folder in my trash called "Recovered Files"

    My guess would be that, you have an application that is running when you reboot your system. The system aborts the application.

    I had the same thing on my ibook. Since I upgraded to 10.4.1 I can not recreate the folder. I really don't know what was causing it in the first place. If anyone has any ideas I would like to know.

    Not a problem ~ Tiger is supposed to do that,
    As a for instance Safari crashes > OK restart. Crashes again > try again and Safari renames the plist file and boots as default with a new plist file. The old folder gets put in the trash.
    Update to 4.1 and the old file gets put in the trash too.
