Just open up your file manager or just create a new desktop link.. or open up a terminal or console and ls and cd your way thru your filesystem like a real guru does..

premature panic

thanks, I figured it out ,
it was more of a duh moment
being a noob isn't easy, I panic over every little error message.
I expect everything to come crashing down, maybe I still have my windows hangups....
