    Yesterday I was playing around on my MBP and something weird happened...

    When I opened finder, in the left hand column, I could see the usual "applications", "music" ,"movies" etc. Then I opened it again later and they were all gone :(

    I can search for files in spotlight and find them, but for some reason they don't show up in finder itself. And the shortcuts in the left hand column are gone too :(

    Is this something simple and I am just missing it? Again, I can find the files in spotlight, and it tells me they are in users/me/Movies - but when I navigate there, it's all empty. Also, some icons on my desktop that were there yesterday are gone today (like the icon for my backup hard drive, parallels icon, Boot camp partition, etc. The only thing there now is the icon for "Macintosh HD"

    Help! :( Thanks!

    swiftaw - thanks for the reply :)

    Actually no, I didn't do that. I decided to reboot, since that always fixed issues on my PC.

    Bingo - everything is back to normal. :) Very odd thing though, don't you think?
