My Spotlight disappeared and I can't find it or get it back. Where is it and how should I make it come back? And when I do, all my folders disapeared from my desktop along with my hard drive. Does this mean they are gone forever and if not where did they go?

How did it disappear? When you do what, all your folders disappear from your desktop? –  slhck Oct 12 '11 at 13:44
Btw @Jin, we try to use mac for the hardware only and osx for the actual software problems. Just in case you stumble upon this again :) –  slhck Oct 12 '11 at 14:02
@slhck I see, thanks for the tip! –  Jin Oct 12 '11 at 14:05
