    They may not have been deleted. Use Spotlight to search for iCal and Dashboard. If they are indeed lost, we'll go from there.

    If you can still open it, Dashboard still exists...somewhere. Open up Terminal (/Applications/Utilities) and enter the following:
    Code:
    sudo find / -name Dashboard
    Enter your password and hit enter. Post the results here.

    If you're running Lion, Dashboard isn't an app per se, it's now called Mission Control and does other stuff as well as running widgets.

    I don't believe I have lion and my dashboard has been up on my computor for 5 years now - and I still have it when I press the middle key on my mouse.....its all there - I just can't seem to get it back in my dock...

    **I also attempted to do a backup and it shows I don;t have a backup disc (which I do and checked it is connected) any ideas? Thankyou!
