Hey All,

I made a big boo boo and deleted my Documents folder. No big deal, all the important stuff was backed up, but when I put it back on the mac, I noticed it was MUCH smaller (50 mb, VS @2GB when it deleted it). I didn't know why it was so big... until....

I started up Parallels and my virtual machine (XP with LOTS of software) was gone!

Was my parallels 'stuff' all stored in my Mac Documents folder???

QUOTE Thanks
