    This has happened ever since I got my new mbp, whenever I restart my mac, the right way :), I get a folder named "Recovered Files" in the trash can. They are not files that I have worked on or saved. Just wondering if anyone else has this happen.

    Yes, it started happening with Tiger, and it's pretty annoying.

    Here is an Apple statement on it...just go ahead and empty the Trash.

    The HP scaning software seems to have trouble when it comes to deleting files after use, so i always get files in the trash after restarting when i use it.

    it always happens with my iMac, just started happening one day.
    Come to think of it, its only happened since the last recent update.
