    I have accidentally selected the "Restore Finder sidebar" option in OnyX and now (as expected) my Finder sidebar is reset to its default state. However I have a small annoyance: iDisk appeared and I can't remove it.

    Until now I've tried to drag it away (didn't work), right click on it (no options appeared) and looking inside the Finder preferences (there is no iDisk option).

    Is there a file where finder keeps its sidebar contents? A plist maybe? So I can edit this file and get rid of iDisk...

    Thanks everyone in advance

    EDIT: forgot to mention that I have OS X Lion 10.7.2

    No, no "traditional" way to remove it works :/

    ----------

    Well, I've just found a solution! I've opened ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist and edited the "RemoveIDiskFromSidebarOnStartup" from YES to NO and then killall-ed the Finder. iDisk vanished :)

    You can type the terminal command:

    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.finder RemoveIDiskFromSidebarOnStartup -bool NO && killall Finder
    Tested and confirmed to work on OS 10.7.5
