    Default Macintosh HD icon missing

    Gday all,

    I recently did a full erase and install of SL and have noticed the Macintosh HD icon is missing. Is this anything to worry about? I can still get to it through finder so its not a big issue, but im more curious than anything else. I know I have seen this before on the forum but cant find it or remember the answer.
    Thanks!

    Go to Finder Preferences, the ability to have it reappear is in there somewhere.

    Just to clarify, Snow Leopard is like this by default. Nothing weird happened to make it disappear in the first place.

    True, but IIRC an upgrade from Leopard will leave the icon there (unless you have manually removed it) since it is there by default in Leopard.

    If it has an engine or a heartbeat it's going to cost you.
