    Unhappy I deleted my Virtual Machine
    The VM Fusion files.....I deleted them by mistake, are in the trash but there's no "undelete" option. What do I do?

    If you're running 10.6 - open the trash - right click on the file and select 'Put Back'

    On 10.5, you'll have to drag and drop the file back where you deleted it from.

    If you deleted it from inside VMWare - I don't know.

    If they're still in the trash, you're fine. Just move the VM files back to where they originally were.

    bobtomay and vansmith are right. It doesn't matter if you deleted it from inside Fusion or from the Finder. It's in the Trash. In 10.5, drag it back to the ~/Documents/"Virtual Machines" folder. In 10.6, just right click on the VM file in the trash and select "Put Back".
