    Can anyone explain why my Macintosh HD folder looks like this? I've tried to run the chflags hidden command in terminal to hide these folders but it just repeats "Permission denied". Why is this?

    Have you run the chflags command via sudo? Sometimes an improperly cloned installation will show those folders.

    Try this :

    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles false ;killall Finder
