    This folder showed up in my favorites sidebar and I cant remove it. Does anyone know what it is and how to get rid of it?

    The icon looks like a Time Machine backup.
    Have you tried holding CMD down while dragging the icon of the Sidebar?
    Where does the shortcut lead to?
    Do others have access to your Mac?

    I researched the holding of the CMD and dragging off the window and it worked. I was unable to select it, right click on it, navigate through it, or highlight it at all. It was like it was a frozen directory. Holding down CMD and dragging it made it go away. Im assuming it was a time machine temp directory that locked up when my laptop went to sleep mid backup? Just taking a guess.
