OK bear with me do to the fact that I don't know to much about Apple systems.
A friend of mine moved files into some box to burn to cd's and a msg came up stating that they would not fit on the CD's so she moveed them back out of the box and then a Msg came up stating that the files with that name already existed on the system do you want to replace them? Thinking why not they were the same files so she picked YES. Now the file show a "chick mark" next to them which states that there "Alias" and when she open the files there blank.
Are they file gone or can she get them back??
Please Help!
Thanks.

This isn't a hardware question - it should go in the OS X section.

But I think you copied the files into the CD burn folder, then copied shortcuts over the originals. So now you think you're opening them, when you're really opening a shortcut which links to itself.
