    Hello everyone... for the past few weeks ive been getting a folder appearing in my Macintosh HD folder (root or / for another name). The Folder is called 삔 which i do not have a clue what that means. Is this sometime of Tmp folder for a Program, or a crash dump... i have no idea and im confused... anyone have an idea? Thanks!

    I can tell you that is Korean, why it's there I couldn't tell you. Did you look inside it?

    I have the folder too. First noticed a couple weeks ago and deleted it, but the folder is back again. Named "삔".

    Ok, and it's being generated by what??? That's the question. If the three of you could compare your Applications, I bet there's one all three of you have that the rest of us who don't have that folder don't have.

    Well Google translate says it means sprain. Though I have no idea why this is showing up.
