    I seem to have lost all my folder actions after a crash in Pages of all things (Parallels and Entourage was also running, so there was virtualisation and Rosetta going on as well). Could someone tell me how this can happen, and whether it's recoverable without going back to last Saturday (my last backup image - no biggie as the data is all elsewhere) or reinstalling all the apps?

    Are the folder actions that you used to have still located in the folder

    ~/library/workflows/applications/folder actions/

    ? Or are they just completely gone (in addition to not actually working)?

    Yes - they seem to be gone from there, although there's something from Appzapper which I got rid of a long time ago. Is this where all the actions which happen on certain folders becoming available are stored?

    You know something, I've just realised that a backup has taken place since this happened... which means that I can't roll back.

    :( :( :(

    And yes, if you have a folder action, it should be in there.
