Untrash the Trash

Feeling trasher's remorse? On Snow Leopard, you can open the Trash (click the Trash icon in the Dock) and "untrash" individual items there. Select one or more trashed items (files and folders) and choose File > Put Back. This returns the items to where they were when you originally put them in the trash. The keyboard shortcut is Command-Delete - the same as the shortcut for trashing an item in the first place, since in deleting something from the trash you are untrashing it.

CMS ABSplus Adds Mac OS X Restores

CMS ABSplus Adds Mac OS X Restores -- CMS Peripherals has updated its Automatic Backup System Plus backup solution so it can now restore a Mac OS X system to working order, as it has been able to do with Mac OS 8.6 and Mac OS 9 since its initial release at Macworld San Francisco in January of 2002 (see "Macworld Expo San Francisco 2002 Superlatives" in TidBITS-612). The ABSplus combines a FireWire hard drive with custom firmware and software that enables it to back up changed files on a Mac as soon as it's plugged in. The ABSplus can now boot a Mac in Mac OS X using the backed-up system's files, something that also wasn't previously possible. There's no question the ABSplus offers unparalleled ease-of-use for fast backup of an individual Mac, but keep in mind that it keeps only the latest version of each file. ABSplus units using FireWire bus-powered laptop hard drives are available in sizes from 10 GB to 60 GB for prices ranging from $240 to $700; larger desktop units that require external power sport 40 GB to 160 GB hard drives and cost between $300 and $600.
