I was trying to delete one file , so i dragged to trash, then all of a sudden I realize my entire Drobo (3TB Huge) was highlighted and deleting to my trash! So now I have a trash folder full all my Drobo's content and I can't figure out how to get it all back to "put back"! I'm afraid that I am going to inadvertently empty trash and lose my entire Drobo's contents! I need to figure out how to undo or put back ... come on Apple. Why'd you make this so difficult???ahh plz help!

Highlight everything, right click, "Put Back"
That should work, although on three Macs that I have running SL, I almost never see the put back option anywhere. I don't know how it works; I won't see it now, and thirty minutes for a different file it's available.

So if you have the same scenario, just highlight it all, and drag them back to your drobo drive.

Others have reported that PB is a little buggy in SL.
It's not buggy......but it is dependent on how the items were put in the Trash. If you drag and drop from the Finder or use the "Move to Trash" menu item from withing the Finder, the "Put Back" option is available. If you use the Dock to find a file and drop it in the Trash, "Put Back" is not an option.

Ah ha! Maybe that wasn't understood by the folks posting about the problem. I haven't upgraded, and was just reporting what I had read, thinking this was a common complaint. Any maybe it is, but the problem is just getting used to using it the way it's designed to be used.

& why, after paying $1300, does an enduser have to scour the net to find the answer? Where were Mac's BETA TESTERS?
