    I have got this weird things happening.

    A folder call "Boot OS X" will suddenly appear on my desktop, screenshot as follow:

    When double click on it, it does not open.

    When I reboot my Mac, it disappears.

    Sometimes, I can get a few of those folders on my desktop until I reboot.


    Been searching the forum without much information. Anyone can shed some light on this behavior?

    I am on Snow Leopard, and this started before I upgrade to Snow Leopard.

    Im getting "삔" folders on my HD 1.

    And before you say dodgy software:

    Two points:
    1. I don't have ANY pirated software
    2. I only have apple update software installed, so its something apple update related :confused:
    (Clean installation, no additional software)

    Which version? The Boot OS X partition is where pgp places it's pgpboot.efi (as well as Apple's). Why it's showing up as a volume, I'm not sure. You might want to look on the PGP forums for an answer.
