    No, but you will lose all documents you selected to delete. That is why one shouldn't use the SMART FOLDERS in the SEARCH FOR section to delete files. And you may loose some screws too.

    To edit your thread title to a descriptive one, just click on the [​IMG] button on the bottom right of your original post and then click the [​IMG] button below your message.

    You will lose everything you delete.

    You might want to go to Finder > Preferences and uncheck all the "Search" items. Then you won't see those smart folders anymore. Those are not copies of your files. They do not take up space on your hard drive. Ignore them.
