I'm trying to learn about my Mac as much as I can. I have a 12" AlPB with Panther. I have no idea what or how an alias works so I hope that some one here might be able to help me. Today while clicking around I found an alias in My Computer. It's labelled as Network and when I click on it, it does nothing. I checked it's info and it says that it is an alias that is locked and according to the "Ownership & Permissions" I have no access. When I click on it it says: The alias "Network" could not be opened, because the original item cannot be found. I have no idea where this file came from and what's even stranger is that it was last modified on Dec 31, 1903...yup that's right 1903...and it is zero KB big. I know that it's not using any space or anything. But I am curious to know what it is...how it got there and how I can get rid of it. Sorry to be such a newbie...but I'm doing my best to learn and I have no idea what to do with this now. If any one could clarify that would be great...and if you can tell me how to get rid of it that would be GREAT! Thank you so much!!
