I live and work in Europe.
Your Mac's Specs
Mac Pro (Late 2013) 8 Cores. w/2 WD 8T Thunderbolt Duo; iPAD Air 2; iPhone 6s, iPOD 5th Gen.
I recently purchased a new MAC Pro (Late 2013 version). While cleaning up my old MAC Pro (MAC Pro Desktop 2006)
I removed (stupid of me) some of its operating files. The operating system was up to Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6.8). Can I Reinstall Snow Leopard software and get the MAC up and running again? Or is there something las I must do first?

Reinstalling Snow Leopard is what I would do.

And if you no longer have the Snow Leopard DVD, Apple Online still sells it for $20 including postage.
