i can't delete a folder thats in the sidebar. when i command click all it says is "open sidebar preferences". when i try to move the folder over to the same folder thats in the sidebar it says "the alias (foldername) can't be found because the original item can't be found". it won't let me delete the alias, so when i click "fix alias" it comes up with a box telling me to find the source file. but it won't let me click anything so i'm forced to say cancel, and when i say cancel i have box pop up saying "error code 8060".


how can i fix this and delete the folder that i have in the sidebar in finder?

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
