OS X :: Desktop Folders/All Disappeared Along With All File Names

Jan 28, 2009

I restarted my macbook pro (10.5.6) last night after really slow internet speeds, and when it booted back up all my desktop folders disappeared. I can't even find a single file name anymore anywhere on the harddrive.

Apple support said they've seen the desktop directory glitch with the finder, but we could not reverse whatever happend and they suggested I spend $100 bucks on Disc Warrior.

How am I going to find about 1700 files????? My time machine drive stopped backing up two months ago, ggggrrrrrrr -right when I needed it eh?!

Does anyone have any ideas what I can try to get back the file names and folders?

I know the data is still on the drive, just with no allocations.

I've repaired all disc permissions 3 times-it keeps having to repair them everytime I reboot.Terry

MacBook Pro :: Desktop Icons Disappeared - Can't Drag-and-drop Anything (at All) To The Desktop

Jun 6, 2012

They're still accessible through finder, but now I can't drag-and-drop anything (at all) to the desktop. It was fine a minute ago before I shut down and rebooted my laptop. Restarts and switching users does nothing. I'm using Mac OSX Lion 10.7.4.

Anyone come across a problem where all the desktop icons disappear?

MacBook :: Desktop Disappeared After Reboot?

Jul 22, 2010

While trying to enable my Microsoft Office 2008 to allow me to enter a new code I pasted a rm command into the terminal, as directed by someone in a forum. I think it may have wiped out my desktop because now the entire desktop is gone.

Will Diskwarrior help me with this or is it a lost cause?

All my music and photo files are fine, it is just everything that was on the desktop, which was a lot.

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Delete DS_Store File / File Keeps Popping Up On My Desktop

Nov 29, 2007

I am relatively new to the Mac. I have a Macbook Pro 2.2GHz. Today, a file keeps popping up on my desktop. It is named .DS_Store. The icon looks like a text document. I won't open it cuz I'm afraid of what it is, lol (Windows still clogging my brain). Anyway, I can drag it to the trash and delete the trash, but after a bit, it reappears.

Any idea how to get rid of it?

OS X :: Folder Full Of Media Disappeared From Desktop?

Oct 10, 2009

I bought my iMac a year and a half ago, but I have no idea how to deal with anything when something goes wrong (because it's so rare that something goes wrong!). Here's what happened:

I woke up, went to my computer, and noticed that a folder was missing off my Desktop. It was full of movie files and it was gone. Thinking a friend had maybe accidentally deleted it, I checked the Trash, not there. I looked through Finder, nowhere to be found. I tried searching specific file names via Spotlight, no luck. I have Apple Care and I called them and the representative took me through all the steps I went through myself to no avail. She also did a disk repair and a permissions repair, no luck.

The weird thing is that if the files were really gone, I would think I would have gotten a lot of disk space back, but I didn't. I'm still where I was the last time I checked, a few days ago.

So now that I've exhausted my own (very limited) knowledge AND Apple's, I'm coming to you. The woman from Apple said sometimes things like this happen when the hard drive is old (only got the computer in April 2008) but I would think that if the files were just spontaneously deleted, I should get a few gigs back on my drive.

IMac :: Unable To Force Quit - Item Disappeared From Desktop

Jan 27, 2010

I'm sure it's not a virus but I'd like to prevent this episode again.
-About 10 minutes ago I inserted my memory stick into my keyboard, and then connected to Cisco.
-I then tried to connect to my school's server and while the progress bar was loading I opened InDesign.
-The Indesign icon started doing it's little jumping thing but nothing was happening. I minimized my browser to look at the progress bar and it was still trying to connect to server. I waited about 2 minutes and when nothing happened I tried a force quit.
-It said that InDesign was not responding so I Force Quit it and nothing happened.
-I then tried to shut down the progress bar but I had that infuriating pinwheel going.
-I decided on a manual shutdown.
-I then turned the computer back on.
-Repeated the same steps except that this time Force Quit said my Safari AND Finder was not responding.
-I Force Quit Finder first. Then Force Quit Connecting to server but all of a sudden my desktop items disappeared as well as my toolbar at the top.
-I tried another manual shutdown because I couldn't call up my Force Quit with my shortcut keys and waited a minute.
-Turned my computer back on but the screen hadn't changed it was as if I had merely put my computer to sleep. I tried this twice.
-Then I turned it off again and this time unplugged my computer and waited a couple seconds.
-I am now on my third try and am afraid to connect to my school's server. I have only opened Safari to type this. I have an assignment due tomorrow!

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Icons From Desktop Disappeared And Finder Keeps Crashing Every 2-3 Seconds

Feb 6, 2012

Last night all my desktop icons just disappeared all of a sudden, I restarted my laptop and they came back but when I try to click and drag anything on my desktop or copy something between finder windows, they just disappear again and Finder crashes.  I downloaded the newest update and installed it, which didn't fix the problem so I found a similar problem on another forum and tried doing what they recommended (which was to delete the Cache folder and some files from the library and restart the computer)  After I restarted, finder started crashing every 2-3 seconds and giving me a message saying that Finder quit unexpectadly while trying to restore it's windows. 

I have a late 2008 unibody MacBook, 4GB RAM, 1TB HD, 2GHz dual core processor.

OS X :: After Downloading And Opening An .rar File A File Named .DS_Store Appeared On Desktop?

Sep 8, 2009

I have a G4, dual 450, 1G Ram running 10.4.11. Recently after downloading and opening an .rar file, a file named .DS_Store appeared on the desktop. I have since deleted the .rar file, but cannot delete the .DS file. It is appearing now in all of my programs, including my camera when I plug it in. I've tried ClamXav, MacScan, and DnsChangerRemovaltool, also What'sKeepingMe, but nothing can remove it. Info says it's a document, 16 KB, and it reads as date created the last time I turned the machine on. Can anyone tell me what this is and how I can get rid of it?

Applications :: ITunes Library Disappeared After Changing File Name?

Mar 21, 2010

A few days ago I tried changing the name of the middle file in the top row (Currently "iTunes Lib", which is what I think it was originally). I opened iTunes last night and found that none of my music was there. Obviously iTunes is looking for THAT folder, but the name is different.

What can I do to set this right? If I knew the original name of the file, I would try that.
