    To save space on my dock, I use a favorite items stack with links to my movies, pictures, music, etc. However, recently items have been duplicating themselves in the stack an in the sidebar on Finder. Usually, I can just drag them off the sidebar and they disappear. Now there are 3 additional links to my desktop along with the one that should be there, I was wondering if there is any way to remove them.
    I have already tried restarting, logging out, "Killall Dock" and removing and re-adding the stack however they still remain.

    If anyone could help, I would greatly appreciate it.

    probably becuase you keep on clicking on the desktop sidebar icon in the Finder and it records it as a recent. the recent stack is undocumented and wasnt added as a feature in Leopard, only available by the deafults command so you can treat it as "beta". i dont like it as it doesnt show quick look icon previews so it doesnt match my other stacks.

    and i do another for utilities but that could be left in applications

    Thanks guys, I thinks you're correct with your explanation richthomas, I guess, I'll go back to using individual stacks or something.

    Hey, I have had this problem as well. For me, when I restart sometimes, all of the icons in my places section duplicate themselves. I drag them out of the sidebar in the finder window, and all but the desktop one removes itself from the stack. To get rid of that one, open up a program, I like textedit, go to save as, and then in the sidebar on the save window at the very bottom should be the extra desktops. Drag them off and that should work. I really wish there was a way to prevent this from happening.
