    While trying to enable my Microsoft Office 2008 to allow me to enter a new code I pasted a rm command into the terminal, as directed by someone in a forum. I think it may have wiped out my desktop because now the entire desktop is gone.
    Will Diskwarrior help me with this or is it a lost cause?
    All my music and photo files are fine, it is just everything that was on the desktop, which was a lot.
    Please help.

    I've been scourging the internet in an attempt to find something like that, but have had no success. I guess OS X doesn't really need a system restore type of thing, since it's so stable...but then when you have problems like this your S.O.L. unless you created a time-machine backup :eek:
