    Everytime I use Stuffit, it brings back folders with ''No Items''.

    I've tried .sits and .rar's and both times the folders it de-compresses have nothing in them.

    Its been doing this the past 4 days.

    I've mad no changes to my system, no haxies - I've changed my wallpaper, dock transparency, and Adium style - thats it.

    Me sad :(

    Is it the latest version of Stuffit? Also, where are you unstuffing these to? Have you tried trashing the preference file, named com.stuffit.Expander.plist? :)

    Something I've noticed about stuffit is that it sometimes un-stuffs everything, but keeps the contents hidden. My guess is that this is what is happening. Try using the terminal to navigate to the directy it *should've* been unstuffed to. You might see them there. You might also try "TinkerTool" to turn on "View Hidden Files" and you may also discover them that way.
