Have noticed this for a few weeks now - running 10.7.2 and if, for example, I download a zip file to downloads, then unzip to the same location I cannot see the unzipped version in Finder. If I use Spotlight I can see it and then open it..... Seems to affect all locations. If I upload some photos to iPhoto, close iPhoto then look at my Pictures in Finder I have a completely empty folder. If I get info on my Pictures folder it says 923 items and 8.23GB. If I rip a dvd to my movies it does not show in Finder but the folder is not empty - and Spotlight can find the file (!!). A restart solves the problem but nothing else seems too.. Is this happening to anyone else - anybody any suggestions how to fix it ????
