How to I show the hard drive in the sidebar of my Mac OS X Window?

Asked by Evan (805points) April 16th, 2008

I foolishly deleted the shortcut to my hard drive in the side bar when I open a window in Mac OS X (10.4.11). I feel like there has to be a simple way of putting it back, but dragging and dropping isn’t working. :) Is there such a way?

sure, go to the finder, go to the preferences (cmd+,) and select the sidebar tab, then just click on hard drives, good luck

If it’s actually been dragged out of the “Devices” panel, and you can’t get it back by viewing hard drives, activate Finder, and on the menu bar choose “Go -> Computer” (or press Shift+Command+C).
Then it’s just a matter of dragging your hard drive icon from the window to the sidebar!

The other way to get to your computer is to keep pressing Command+Up Arrow until you get to the computer, showing all the storage devices connected. Command+Up takes you to the “enclosing folder”.
