Hello,

I had to reset my macbook admin password as i forgot it.
I lost the startup disk so i fooled the mac into thinking i was a first time user again.

It worked, i was able to setup a new admin password. But.....i have lost all desktop items and the icon for the hard drive is not on the desktop.
How do i recover the hard drive icon and or find all my pictures and documents stored in my mac?
