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:
or you could also manually unhide the file(s) like so:
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
- then relaunch the finder
