    Azureus (torrent client) tells me that a .sit file I've downloaded is 24.5 mb. But when I go look at it in finder, it only shows as an empty folder. Whats wrong? :)
    :confused: :) :eek:

    Well who ever made the .sit file may of put a . (dot) in front of the name. In Unix (which runs as the core of OS X), anything with a . (dot) in front of the filename will make it hidden. So that could be the case, and probably is.

    I don't know your Mac will either boot to Mac OS 9 (not using classic mode), or boot into Windows, but both of those will easily show a hidden OS X/Unix file.

    you could also navigate to the folder in Terminal and use the command 'ls -a'
