    Hey there,

    I'm using iCloud desktop & documents and I want to see these two folders in my home folder in finder. Actually they are present but just hidden. I already tried to chflags them with nohidden without success. Does anyone know a way to unhide them?

    Perhaps this is what Finder does. I read about some oddities regarding the iCloud features and UNIX tools.

    What is the output of this command?
    Code:
    ls -lOn ~ | egrep "Desktop|Documents"

    drwx------@ 11 501 20 - 374 Sep 21 09:28 Desktop

    drwx------@ 13 501 20 - 442 Sep 21 09:08 Documents

    I assume this is related to the "@" in the permissions, even though I do not understand what it means.

    It is an extended attribute:
    Code:
    ls -l@n ~

    Does it say anything?
