    hey dudes/dudettes.

    nearly increadibly closely had a hdd failure, i have everything backedup so its all sweet. but i was just wondering if there are any programs that can give me a visual idea of the directories when i want to copy all the stuff back, so that it looks the same. any ideas?

    terima kasih (thanks) :)

    Ahh, cool. Check out this thread and their advice on using Terminal or AppleScripts to do just that... I'm pretty sure that's what you're after. :)

    Like the second finder view? The folder hierarchy? (I think that's what it's called anyway, I'm a bit tired right now.)
