    Hello,

    After I reboot my new MBP running Leopard. I tend to see folders in the Trash been called "Recovered Files". I'm not sure where these come from but I surely never copied them to the trash. Is this normal?

    Yes it's normal. Basically it's temp files that were being used now being trashed.

    It is that simple? It isn't something like a hacker deleting my computer files? BTW: For notesake: The link above my post isn't working, I checked it out.

    No, it has nothing to do with hacking. That link was posted 5 years ago. Here's a current one:

    It's quite useful to reply to this X years old thread. Thanks Digi-Scrap.
    These files are still in the Trash, even 7 years later ;)
