    ......it disappeared completely from the finder so i typed "defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles -bool true" in the terminal window and it has put the folder back where it should be in the finder menu but the folder is still dimmed so i assume my system still sees it as a hidden file so i need a command to tell the system that it is not a "hidden" file, any ideas?? I'm not even sure if I'm on the right track, I'm only new to Mac's
    :eek:

    Houdini is a utility to hide/unhide files and folders. You can also use it to view all hidden files without terminal commands, restart finder, and maybe some other things too.

    enter this command into Terminal which is in your Utilities folder.

    Code:
    chflags nohidden Music
