    So apparently I deleted the ESPN widget and emptied the trash...DOH!

    How do I go about restoring from Time Machine?

    Late 2001 Macbook Pro running OS X Lion 10.7.3.

    Thanks!

    Where did my widget go?

    OK...I found the widget under Macintosh HD/Library/Widgets and restored it, but now the widget does not show up.

    Has anyone ever dealt with an disappearing widget?

    I also tried deleting /Users/username/Library/Preferences/com.apple.dashboard.plist and restarting but the ESPN widget is still not there? hmmmm...


    Resolved: For some reason the ESPN widget was zero bytes. I restored from an earlier version in Time Machine and it shows up now.

    Weird.
