    Not exactly sure how I did it, must have been my habit of dragging a "shortcut" from Windows and then placing it where I want. But I accidently deleted Spaces from my Dock. I then went and dragged Spaces icon from Applications folder to Desktop and proceeded to move it to the Dock.

    Long story short, I cannot find Spaces on my machine anywhere and it was deleted from Trash. But I can only assume the program still resides on my HD someplace?

    In Windows, you need to Uninstall the program to delete it. Please tell me that I have not accidently lost the program for good?

    Thanks in advance for your help,
    Dan

    PS - I am not presently at home and have no access to my Time Capsule HD at this time.

    When your throw something away it uninstall (deletes) the entire program right away. So I think it's lost. Try to insert your backup disc (with leopard) and see if you can reinstall from there.
