I have lost my Hard Drive icon on my desktop. How do I get it back.

I have lost my Hard Drive icon on my desktop. How do I get it back.

Quick thing to try: from the Finder, select the View menu and then select "Clean Up" in case it has wandered somewhere almost off the desktop.  Also, if it is "hiding" behind something, it will be revealed.

  • Hard Drive Icon (Macintosh HD) Disappeared - How do I get it back

    Hi,
    My Macintosh HD Icon that has been at the top right of my desktop forever is gone. Anyone know how to restore it? Getting to the hard drive now is a pain.
    Thanks.

    I am not sure how the OS puts the hard drive icon onto the desktop. But, one thing you could do is to peak inside the /Volumes directory to see what is listed there in regards to your hard drive. To do that, start the terminal app from the utilities folder. Then, copy and paste this command into the terminal window:
    ls -al /Volumes (followed by a return)
    Then, please copy and paste the results into another post.
    The results that I get are:
    drwxrwxrwt 4 root admin 136 Nov 24 19:32 .
    drwxrwxr-t 41 root admin 1496 Nov 15 18:50 ..
    -rw-rw-rw- 1 rich admin 6148 Nov 24 19:32 .DS_Store
    lrwxr-xr-x 1 root admin 1 Nov 15 18:51 eMac Hard Drive -> /
    where eMac Hard Drive is the name for my hard drive. If your results do not look similar, perhaps there is a problem that can be fixed here.

    Ive just updated my iPhone4 to the IOS5 software and i have lost all my apps? why? and how can i get them back?

    When an iPhone updates, it wipes the whole device clean and then reinstalls the software and then the backup. Obviously you didn't create/couldn't create a backup either via iCloud or iTunes. You can get your apps back when you go to App Store>Updates>Purchased and download the apps you want.

    Click here and follow the instructions, or move them from the old computer. Any movies you've previously rented aren't transferable.

    What do you mean it's lost?  Did you actually put it on the new computer?
    Simply installing iTunes and logging into your account does not cause content to magically appear.

  • I have an iphone 4 and I have just upgraded to iOS 5. I have lost my progress bar and song repeat function, how can I get them back?

    I have an iphone 4 and I have just upgraded to iOS 5. Unlike some people, I have not really had any problems but I am really annoyed with the new music feature. I have lost my progress bar abd song repeat function. Does anyone know how I can get them back?

    Glad to hear it all works for you.
    For future reference, if your iPhone misbehaves, always try a Reset. It's painless and often solves the problem.
       Press and hold both the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears (ignore the Slide to Power Off option that shows up first).
    Enjoy.

  • I have recently upgraded to the iPhone 4 I have lost two hundred purchased songs off iTunes now how do I get them back?

    Please can you help me to get my songs back. I have no access to the computer I backed them up on. Obviously I have purchased alot of songs therefore would appreciate it if I could get them back.
    Thanks

    All iTunes content on your iPhone - all music, movies, tv shows, and apps should be in your iTunes library on your computer - the computer used for syncing your iPhone with, and your iTunes library should be included with your computer's backup along with all other important data.
    You get the songs back with the computer where the songs are located with your iTunes library.
    If the computer is no longer available or accessible and you didn't include your iTunes library with your computer's backup, your purchased songs are gone - unless the songs purchased from the iTunes store are available on a previous iPhone that is available and working.

  • I have lost Lightroom 5.6 due to a hard drive crash. The old hard drive has been replaced. How can I get LR5 back? I don't have a disc. I still have my LR4 disc and key. I have another adobe  key, but don't know if it relates to LR5.

    I have lost Lightroom 5 due to a crashed hard drive. I don't have a back up disc, and I dont think I have a key. I have a an adobe key recorded but don't know if it relates to LR5. I have an LR4 disc and key. LR5 is still intact and running on my laptop, but I need to use LR% on my desktop PC. I need an address to try a download so that I can try the key which might fit it. Any ideas how I can transfer the program (with key) from my laptop? Any other ideas?
    John Carden <[email protected]>

    Just download and install.
    you can find by internet search for "download Lightroom", or click here:
    https://creative.adobe.com/products/download/lightroom
    Note: trial software is same as licensed software, once you license it.. (I hope you still have the license key).

  • What happens when the external icon jumps on top on the hard drive icon on the desktop?

    The external drive icon jumped to the hard drive icon on the desktop and after that happen the iMAC started running slow. Not sure how that happen or what is happening to the iMAC after it happen. All my applications are running and launching slow.  Also, when I tried moving files to the external drive I'll get a "error code -36". When I looked up the error message it says that the file is corrupted even though I could still open them. How can I fix this problem and not lose any files?  Thanks for any help.

    RRFS has probably got the answer basically - but the combined contents of the two drives has probably maxed out the drive space on Macintosh HD, meaning the OS can't use virtual memory properly.
    Open a Finder window and read the available space at the bottom.
    If you have copied the drive, it should show as a folder under Macintosh HD in the Finder.
    I hesitate to tell you to delete the whole folder as that may be too much for Finder to cope with. Open the folder and delete files and folders in small chunks, emptying the trash each time before doing the next..
    Meanwhile, if you go to the Finder preferences and uncheck the item for Hard Disks in the desktop list, then move the icon for the external away from that corner before re-enabling the Hard disk option.
    You may need to go to View options from the right-click menu on desktop and set 'arrange by' to 'none' in order to get the icon to stay where you want it.

  • What are all the hard drive icons on my desktop from app installations?

    Most of the apps I have installed leave a new hard drive icon on my desktop, like these. Obviously the Macintosh HD is an good one to keep, but the others just keep accumulating and I find that to be a problem.
    What are these?
    What purpose do they serve?
    Can I delete them?
    If no delete, can I hide them?
    Thanks

    1. Mounted disk images.
    2. They contain the software or its installer. The dmg format doesn't require separately storing the decompressed version of the data on the computer.
    3. Yes.
