    In leopard i accidently deleted the folder icon for "downloads" and "documents" when moving them to my external hard drive. The icon is also not on my external Hard Drive and it's not in the trash so How do I get them back?

    Please Help, Thank you:)

    It's the actual icon for the folder and not the folder itself.

    Thank you but your file is just a white icon and when I drag it over the folder on :apple:i it just turns into that icon and not the download icon.

    Apple are really difficult because something like this should be easy.

    Delete the replacement folders and reboot. I think they'll come back.

    Nope that did not work, is there anyway?

    God damn Apple they try to simplify things so much that they make it difficult.

    Ok, well it was worth a shot.
    Try this, make a replacement Downloads folder. Get Info, click on the icon and Cut (Cmd-X) it. That work?
