Hi,

After running the command " rm -rf ~/.Trash/* " thru the terminal, all the desktop files, documents and the emails are missing from the Mac OsX. Please guide on recovering/retrieving the files.

Thanks

Your guide on retrieving that data is to restore it from your latest backup.

+1!!! Amazing how fast and thorough Terminal can be isn't it?? And makes one wonder what was actually intended or to be fixed, but a bit of a drastic method I'd say. Sigh… :Smirk:

PS: I like your sig McBie, and it seems rather timely and appropriate.
