    Hi

    I just installed File Buddy to find and remove an invisible file. I found it on the first search and proceded in marking it and pressing the "remove" button.

    Apparently this did not delete the file, it merly removed it from File Byddy´s list. Now the file is stil in the way (I can´t replace it with another file for example) and i´m not able to find it in File Buddy anymore.

    What to do? Help!

    Thanks:)

    Much easier just to use the Terminal I would have thought for things like that. Use the command ls -lsa to list the contents of a directory in a pleasing manner. It will show hidden files as well. Then just do rm filename.
