I moved a folder to the finder sidebar under favorites then accidentally erased files in original folder. Now message appears "xxxxxx can’t be opened because the original item can’t be found." when I try to delete or drag folder to trash bin. I am just trying to get rid of the folder, don't care about the files.

I am running Lion on an iMac

Hold down your "Command" key and drag the folder to the desktop and drop it there. It should go "Poof" and disappear.
