I accidently deleted my "private" folder from my HD but not from the recycle bin. My MBP gets hanged up on the gray screen with the apple logo. I read some previous discussions and tried using the following command in terminal:

 

cp -rf /Volumes/"drive name"/Users/username/.Trash/private /Volumes/"drive name"\

 

When i enter this command the reply comes as: "My name": No such file or directory

 

Please help.
