    Dear all,

    By mistake some days ago I deleted some folders and now they appears in my bin.

    I open the bin and I see my files and my folders. How do I restore them in the same exact position they were originally???

    Where is the right click and than restore option?

    Thank you for your help and support,

    ps: i don't remember the original file path that's why i need "restore where they originally were" option.

    pps: Mac OS X 10.7.2

    You're saying when you right-click on them, there is no "Put Back" option?

    Make sure you are not selecting multiple files in the Trash, or sub-items of folders in the Trash.

    Select one item at a time, and if a whole folder is in the Trash, you must select the whole folder and not anything inside it.

    This is probably why. Finder doesn't know where to put the files back because it didn't move them in the first place.

    But you can do copy that files, right?
    just do it.

    As far as i know trash/finder can't put back files from/into Temporary folder.
