Deleting 'Rescued Items' from the Classic environment
Authored by: Peter Kappesser on Oct 14, '03 09:57:57PM

A related issue bit me recently. The "Temporary Items" folders at the root level of each volume, invisible in OS 9, are temptingly visible in OS X. I'd stashed some files I'd downloaded there. After rebooting in OS 9 to use a program that's not compatible with Classic, these files got moved to the OS 9 Trash as "Rescued Items" -- which I didn't notice until after emptying the Trash, thus losing the files. Not even Norton could find traces of them to recover.
