    i don't think you can delete it, but i could be wrong, you probably just hid hard drives from appearing on your desktop

    Finder->Preferences->Sidebar

    Maybe it didn't work but I was just checking you knew the Preferences thing in the reply above yours said how to get it back on the desktop as well as the sidebar. :Lhttp://images.macrumors.com/vb/images/smilies/smile.gif

    2 year old thread and the poster you quoted hasn't been around for over 6 months. What is it with so many first-time posters reviving dead threads as their first (and many times, only) post?

    Maybe it's because the first post date is not that obvious, especially for a newbie.

    Deleted logo/symbols

    I accidentally deleted a symbol from my finder. it was a silver ball and you would usually see it in Office Word - notebook format. I deleted it off from my finder along with other files and now my Word look very weird and there are random logos which became substitutes for missing logos. What should i do???
