I have a 2-yr-old 3.06GHz iMac Core 2 Duo with 4GB RAM.  Upgraded to Lion and cannot find Airdrop on Finder sidebar, nor any option to add it.  Ideas?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7)

    If you don't see AirDrop in the sidebar, then your mac does not support it.  For iMacs, you need an early 2009 or newer.

    I'm afraid you're wrong there Len. While you're right about older macs not supporting AirDrop, there's a chance it may have been removed from the sidebar favourites. In this case you'd need to add it back.


    In order to add it, head to Preferences in the Finder menu and see if AirDrop is an available option.


    If so give it a tick. It should now be in your sidebar favourites
