I just had a major hard drive failure. My backup seems to be working fine, except for all my collections in Bridge.
My Smart Collections cannot be accessed or even deleted. When I click on one it gives me the message: "The collection target folder "[name]" cannot be found. It may have been renamed or deleted."
I could easily re-create them to match this new drive, but I can't even click on the collection. How can I edit (or even delete) these collection folers that are appearing on the interface? Even if I re-create the collections, the old useless folders still remain.

If you put your cursor above the collection name without selecting it can you use right mouse click and from menu choose delete?
On a Mac the path for the collection is to be found in the user library (hidden by default per OSX 10.7, use menu Go with option and the library will appear)
User (your name) / library / application Support / Adobe/ Bridge CS xx / Collections. Inhere are the collection names that you also can delete manually.
Windows might have a similar path but I don't that
