    Here's an odd one, my 1.25 Mac mini reset itself, no bookmarks, no memory of email accounts, every program I open is registering as it has never been opened, no keychain, no nothing.

    I haven't installed anything on it as it isn't the primary machine any longer but I use it as an archive for emails, etc.

    Wondering if anyone has any idea what could cause this?

    I made a clone of my Macbook disk, could I restore from this clone to the mini or would it be better to use the migration assistant and transfer the settings from the MB to the mini?

    EDIT:
    Actually figured out the problem, I renamed a folder...opps:cool:

    hiya,
    I experienced the same problem today. After having read your post I figured out that I did the same thing yesterday. I tried to change the name of a folder in lefthandside of the finder window. Now, all my settings have reset and all my documents that I had saved on the desktop have dissapeared!!!!!
    Help.. how do I get it back..??
    I have an imac G5..
