I was wondering if there would be a way to reset my Sidebar's Places section.


It seems when I plugged in my external hdd, one of the files managed to get on there (somehow). I noticed after unplugging the device, and now every time I right-click on the file to remove from sidebar, the only option it gives me is "Sidebar preferences". I cannot get rid of whatsoever.


Is there any file I can delete in Library (as it seemed to work with that way for older OS), and reset this? I tried to look for or something like that under Library which was suggested for older OS, but does not seem to exist.


Thanks in advance!
