    my iMac is running LEOPARD. just now, I accidentally moved all the .rar files in my entire HDDs to Trash.
    BUT I HAVEN'T EMPTY THE TRASH. So the files are in the trash now.

    Just wonder if there is a way to restore them to their original directories, so that i don't need to move them individually(some of them i have no idea where they were), just like windows does.

    thanks a lot!

    Using Time Machine would probably be the easiest way. OS X doesn't do this like Windows does.

    In that case, I'm afraid it's the old manual one-by-one method for you. Enjoy.
