A: The 'Deleted Items' folder contains the email messages deleted from your other folders. It is recommended that you empty the 'Deleted Items'folder from time to time, to avoid the build up of old and unnecessary email, which may slow down your email environment.

  1. Right-click the IncrediMail Tray Icon (orange envelope), located in the lower right corner (near the computer clock), and select 'Exit'.
  2. Windows 2000 or XP users: Browse to the following location:

Unable to save my word documents when I click on save


If it was truely a shortcut and was deleted, the data is still in the folder on the hardrive (c:) and can be accessed with the file manager or exploring the c: (root) drive. once you find it , right click on it , select "make shortcut, then drag the shortcut to your desktop.
If it was a folder (not a shortcut) on your desktop that was deleted, you should be able to find the folder in your Recycle Bin and select it and click on RESTORE and that should put it back where it was .
If it was a folder and deleted and the recycle bin was emptied, it is lost unless you pay someone HIGH dollar to retrieve data from your harddrive that was deleted.
Hope this fixes ya up , post again if you need further assistance.
Regards..

Mac mini desk top can not click


You can access your desktop as though it were any other folder and thus delete its contents however you'd care to.

In Finder, go to the File Menu > New Finder Window. It should automatically open your user folder and show Application, Desktop, Documents, etc. From there, simply open the Desktop folder and delete the files.
If any other window is opened, click on Mac HD > Users > [your user name here] > Desktop and do the same.

Creating space on external hard drive


When you move files to the Trash on a Mac you are just marking the files to be deleted next time you empty the trash. You are not actually deleting them when you move them to the trash. They will continue to take up space on your drive until you empty the trash.

Emptying the trash will delete everything in the Trash folder regardless of which drive it is stored on. If you have files you are not certain you want to delete that are located on your internal drive, open the Trash folder and move them temporarily out (like to the desk top), then empty the trash to delete all the ones on the external drive that you do want to clear off.

You will see that the free space has increased on the external drive. Now put back in the trash the files from your internatl drive you were thinking of deleting but not certain you wnated to (if that is your reason for not wanting to empty the trash. I'm not clear on why you would not want to delete them.)
