So, I had to reload OS X (10.7) using my Time Machine backups. All went well, except that the folders that I've restored are not showing in Finder. If I drop to terminal, and I perform 'ls' then I can see the folders there. I manually created a subfolder in the Movies folder and that shows in Finder, with a difference in terminal. Doing a 'ls -al' shows the following in the Movies folder: drwxr-xr-x username staff ManuallyCreatedFolder drwxr-xr-x@ username staff FoldersRestored It shows that my username is the owner of the folders restored, it shows that I have read and execute as user, but I have no clue what that @ at the end means and maybe that's the reason why it's not displaying in the Finder? Oh, I also repaired permissions and didn't do anything either. Thanks! Update: chflags -R nohidden * This command did the trick. I ran it in the Movies folder and all subfolders showed up.
