    Hello Everyone;

    I face problem with my Hard disk drive (MBP 2011) When the OS X Loading (loading indicator) about %40 OS X shutdown automatically !

    Now I replace the hard disk with a new one, When i plug the old hard disk drive (external) It's working and when I want to see my Fonts Unfortunately I see only system fonts !


    Please How I can find my Fonts in the old Hard disk ?

    MacBook Pro (15-inch Early 2011), OS X Yosemite (10.10.2)

    They're probably installed as user fonts, so look at:


    The user 'Library' folder might be hidden, but you can still navigate to it using 'Go to folder' in the menu bar -> Go or via shift-command-G

    I've Bolded-Underlined key points from sammich's post. The Library folder is hidden/invisible in the Macintosh HD/Users/username/ folder (if your username/log-in account name is graphicsarea then it would be /Users/graphicsarea/Library/Fonts), remember the Library folder is invisible.

    Here are instructions on how to make hidden files/folders visible and invisible:

    Edit to correct instructions since an external drive is used. The Go to Folder option is little trickier with an external drive so I removed it.
