trouble restoring a file in a . folder


Recommended Posts

I'm experiecing trouble when trying to restore a file that was in a folder named .pics

It apears like this on the list, i select it and it is restored on the disk. but when i open the restoration file on my mac, it's empty : the .Pics folder is nowhere to be seen, and it's content is not there either.

does anyone knows how to get this folder back ?

thanx

Actually, it is there.

 

You just can't see it.

 

Any file/folder with a name that begins with "." will be invisible. This is standard operation for *nix.

 

You can ues the Terminal or other OS X utilities to open or rename the folder, or use something such as TinkerTool to have the Finder show all folders/files, even invisible ones.
