Hi OK I was transferring 11GB worth of stuff to my ext. hdd but I cannot find the Org. Files that are on the Mac HDD they have just gone and it is really starting to annoy and worry me as I have already had to reformat this stupid thing (MacBook and don't ask long story). I have spotlighted looking for it and it only shows the folders on ext. hdd, I remove it and it isn't there anymore. I really do give up with Mac OS X as it keeps doing this to me and the only solution I have found is to back up important files and reformat (Already done it enough times already not doing again). Please help Northy Edit: I think this is in the right place as I'm 100% sure it is the OS doing it not anything else.
