Default Lost "filing cabinet"

Please Login to Remove!

I seem somehow to have lost the "filing cabinet" which sat within Applications on my 8900 Curve. So I cannot access a list of the files within my blackberry. I can attach files to an email so I know that they are all still there in the media card - I just can't access them directly in order to delete old ones.
Any advice on restoring this would be very gratefully received. My provider is O2 and they do not allow customers to speak with their technical team.
Many thanks

First look to see if you have hidden the icon or moved it into a folder by accident.

A work around is to go through the Media Icon. Open the Media icon and press Menu and select "Explore".

Ditto the above. Also try a battery pull for at least thirty seconds if you've determined the icon is not hidden.

Thank you both. The work around is good and has let me delete some unwanted files. I've tried a "battery-out when switched on" reset but that did not restore the filing cabinet. Clicking Show All in Applications brought up a few extra icons but not the filing cabinet. I've tried looking in all the icons on the main screen but cannot find the filing cabinet.

Is there somewhere in particular it could be hidden and how would I discover that?

Just look in all the folders. And to be clear, by hidden se don't mean simply stowed away in some folder, but really hidden. Open the menu and select "show all" to reveal the hidden icons. If you find it, then highlight it and unhide it.
