Hi, I accidentally used "rm -rf" command to delete from the top directory instead of the one that i actually wanted to delete. Started with gcc giving error messages that it cant open a.out. So , a lot of applications ( including ones that came with MAC leopard - chess, garage band etc ) got removed . Cant find them in Trash. .Trashes doesnot have permission - shows administrator as the owner even though I am the administrator. Cant find the logfiles to check what happened. Could someone please tell me Where are they located? I donot have backup. Please tell me how to recover those applications - actually i dont even know what all got deleted since dont know where the logfile is. Plesae help. Thanks a lot.
