    I was using Back to My Mac and somehow (I hate the time delay between moving the mouse and the corresponding action on screen!) dragged the icon of my boot drive off the list of devices in the finder window. The icon is gone now, and I was wondering how to get it back. Nothing else is wrong (the computer still boots from this disk, the second internal drive icon is still present as is the iDisk icon, etc.) but it is a bit of a pain to have to work around this problem. Can anyone think of a way to get this icon back in my list of devices?

    Drag the icon of your disk from your desktop to the sidebar in the finder window. If it is not on your desktop either then you need to re-enable it from finder preferences. (Finder menu -> Preferences)

    Thank you so much for your help! I should have been able to figure that out for myself, but your long-distance tech support came to the rescue. Thanks so much!
