i had an .avi file. i was changing the name and pressed return or clicked off the file before renaming and the file was renamed .the.etc etc.avi "etc etc" is not the real name of the file. anyway, file disappeared in finder and pathfinder. and i cant sportlight it. so starting with a 'dot' the file disappears? i tried it with another file i made a copy of and the same thing happens. i was playing the avi file briefly before i began renaming in vlc and the file still appears in the recent list and i can watch it fully. anyone know how to recover the file so i can see it? thanks.
