I logged on to my Mac mini and to my suprise all my desktop folders had disappeared. Not only that, the libraries for Itunes, Iphoto... everything seemed to have been deleted as well as an external drive. One good thing is that the user folder shows that space is being used for something but I can't find the files on my HD.


It's like I've done a clean install as the apps have no data and the drive icons don't appear on the desktop.


Any ideas?

G5 Dual 2ghz, Imac Graphite, Powerbook 1.67, ibook G3 Blueberry, Mac OS X (10.4.2), Mac Mini 2.53, Mac Book 2.26, Snow Leopard
