I Pressed Restore on a wrong source extern USB HD on my iMac.



  • Now I can't find the folder anymore. The Invisible Window is empty (not show the Folder anymore) and on of the the wrong USB-HD Drives are also.
    When I connect the rightHD also.
    I didn't get a warning before when I clicked the Restore Button. I am a registered User and worked before fine.



  • if you have a time machine backup you could restore this folder:
    ~/Library/Containers/com.sweetpproductions.Invisible

    or you could also manually unhide the file(s) like so:
    Open Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app
    paste in this command:

    defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles YES
    
    • press enter
    • relaunch the finder
    • locate your files

    Invisible adds a . to the beginning of your files,
    just remove the .

    then, undo the changes:

    • Open Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app
    • paste in this command:
    defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles NO
    
    • press enter
    • then relaunch the finder
