    SO I went to update my version of iMovie and ran SWU.


    It tell me to restart, I do.....


    Then i notice one of my HD icons is gone, I run Disk Utility and it doesnt see any disks! Not even my boot drive!

    What going on?

    I have gave the pram a zap and tried to fixed the issue via single user mode at start up.

    when i ran sbin/fsck -y it kept giving me the same error it could not seem to fix.

    Something about "Nestled folders" exceeding the 100 limit or something.

    I dont get how this happened?


    How can the Disk Util not see the drives? they show up in the System profiler....

    Try booting from your OS X CD and look in the Disk Utility on there.

    boot into OS 9, see if the problem persists. And is there really a 100 nested folders limit? Never knew that.
