    Hi - tonight I made a big mistake. I moved the /usr Folder to another Folder. Is there a way to get it back ??
    I am running Mac OS X Snow Leopard Server 10.6.2 on a Mac Mini, which resides at the Location of my internet Provider.

    Thanks for any idea or help

    You could reinstall the system, with SL nothing gets deleted just repaired.

    How did you move it. Using terminal you would have done something like 'mv /usr /Other/Folder/'. So why not do the opposite; 'mv /Other/Folder/usr /'.

    I'm not sure how wise that is. Also, I'd reboot after returning it. Did you change owner ship privileges too? That could put a kink in the fix.

    Note that I've never had to fix such an issue.
