:(

I just had a complete mental lapse and deleted a huge folder of applications.

Are there any free applications that will help me restore them?

Dan.

Best best is to compile a list of your applications, if you can't remember them all take a look at your libraries :) Then from them reinstall them.

Nope, Data Rescue's not free. I should know. I ordered it in an extreme amount of panic. Which what they count on. People are a lot more willing to pay a premium for software when it can save their job.

This happens to people all the time. If they're just applications then just reinstall them. But this is a lifelong lesson. BACKUP. ALWAYS BACKUP...until Leopard comes out with TimeMachine :D

Well, I don't have the install discs because... "Arr, matey." What I deleted was actually the install DMGs. There's your answer. I did get it installed on my PowerBook, but I wanted to hang onto a copy for my future Intel iMac, but it's okay. Apparently these programs don't run well on Intels anyway.

Dan.

P.S. Time Machine would be very nice right now.

If you know how to pirate software, you should should know how to back it up.

Don't come on here asking for help getting back illegitimate applications. I'm not going to pretend that I'm a saint, but I can't stand people wanting free help to get back illegal software. It just doesn't make sense.
