    Here's what I used in terminal:

    Code:
    cp -Rp ~/Desktop /Volumes/Files
    chmod -R -N ~/Desktop
    rm -rf ~/Desktop
    ln -s /Volumes/Files/Desktop ~/Desktop
    Didn't work, caused errors. anyone know why?

    So I fixed the problem.

    But anyway, does anyone know why creating a symbolic link of the desktop to another location does not work??

    Thanks

    Here is a tip: "does not work" is a nearly worthless description of the problem you are/were having. You need to describe both the problem as you perceive it (and how you have decided that it is a problem in many cases). You have done the right thing in telling how you got to the point.
