OS X V10.7 Lion :: Can't Find "Library" Folder In Home Folder

May 27, 2012

I just updated my MacBook to Lion, and I used to have a folder when using Leopard called "Library." I can't find it anymore. The only way to get to it is to open Xcode 4, make a Cocoa application, build it, then right-click the target, then click "Show in finder. This is what the library folder looks like after I do that:

I can still click the folder and it will show me its contents, but once I leave the home folder, the folder dissappears, and I can't find it:

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Access The Library Folder In The Home Folder?

Jun 9, 2012

It appears that the Library folder that is in the Home Folder (e.g./Users/Home/Liberary)has been made invisible in OS 10.7.x. However I have seen it because after converting samples Logic showed me the folder and its contents. I would very much like to move the samples from their present location in this folder on the startup disk to the EXS 24 samples folder  on the external RAID array that is dedicated to this purpose - - but I don't know how to make the Library folder visible.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: The 'Library' Folder That Supposed To Show Up In "home" Folder Is Not Showing Up?

Feb 22, 2012

If you click on your mac HD icon and go into the 'users' folder. Ther eis an icon with a house. This is what I think is called the 'home' folder. Usually, there is a folder in the 'Home' folder called 'Library' and I cant seem to locate it. Where did it go?

OS X Mountain Lion :: How To Create Application Folder In Home Folder

Aug 29, 2014

I'm using MacBook Pro Early 2011 model with Mountain Lion (10.8.5).

I recently noticed that there was an application folder in my home folder (the folder with your username), but that application folder had been empty. I remember I used to be able to access to my applications from that folder, but not anymore. 

Since the folder was empty, I deleted it before doing further research. 

After deleting the empty application folder from the home folder, I looked up and some said the application folder in the home folder and the application folder in Macintosh HD are two different folders. I don't know what it means, but I would like to have an application folder with applications in my home folder. Is this possible? or should I just make an Alias folder and put it in my home folder?

Can't Find Safari Folder Under Library

Apr 14, 2012

I have a problem in that the Safari folder is not found in the Library folder. I use OS X Lion and the Library folder is permanently displayed (by using Terminal) under Computer, but the Safari folder is strangely enough not there. I have tried to find it while showing hidden files (also by using Terminal commands) but to no avail. Both Lion and Safari are updated to their latest versions.I need to find and use the bookmarks.plist file, which cannot be found since its parent Safari folder is not displayed. (I need it to alter it in order to remove the bookmarks and bookmark bar folders on the iPhone, by iTunes sync.)

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Can't Find "library" Folder On It

Mar 18, 2012

I just upgraded to Lion, and noticed in my users section, there's no "Library" folder. In Snow Leopard I used to delete the 'caches' folder (inside Library) every few weeks to clear the clutter. What to do? Here's a screen shot. "Library" should be between "Downloads" and "Movies," but it's not.

OS X :: Home Folder Short Name Change Still Not Advisable - Nothing In Folder?

Apr 2, 2009

I know the Home Folder short name changing issue has been discussed already on here, and most people seem to advise either against it or to backup before proceeding. I just obtained my first MacBook Pro second hand, and it still has the previous owner's Home Folder and Short Name, even though he has deleted all his files from it, and there's only pretty much standard folders within it (Library, Applications), but nothing in them. I've been saving my own stuff elsewhere in another folder I created on the Mac HD drive. Is it fairly safe then to change his name over to my own following the steps on the Apple website, or would his home still be attached to certain important components? I'd rather not create a brand new account where I have to fiddle with settings again for everything, though I'm not sure if I may have to do that anyway. I'm using Leopard, by the way. The login he passed on at start-up still says administrator as a user name, though, not his shortname. Will that change also?

OS X Mavericks :: Home Folder Not Visible In Users Folder

Sep 5, 2014

My home folder appears to have gone missing from the Users folder in finder. See screenshot - I can see the test account I created and the shared folder but not my home folder.  

I can still access my home folder via the sidebar but this causes problems with some software not being able to see my home folder in their browsers (Nikon Capture NX2 being an example).

OS X Mavericks :: How To Copy Folder From Hidden Library Folder That Is Not On Startup Drive

Jun 5, 2014

I have a hard drive on my 2008 MacPro that's problematic and so I bought a new drive and installed Mavericks on it and am booting just fine on the new drive. There is however, one folder in the Library/Preferences folder that I need to copy over to the new drive.  All the tricks for accessing the Library folder work great on the start up drive, but I can't seem to access the Library folder on the old drive (both drives in the MacPro as it has 4 drive bays), even though the drive will mount.  How can I see that Library folder on the old drive?  Note  while I can mount the old drive, I can't boot to it.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Can Rename The Home Folder

Mar 14, 2012

I recently had my 15" MacBook Pro serviced because of a hard drive failure. It required that the operating system (OSX 10.7.3) be reinstalled. The reinstall was handled by the Best Buy Geek Squad store where I originally purchased the Mac. They named my home folder using only my first name in lower case letters. I would prefer my full name like my previous install.  DoI understand correctly that it is NOT possible to rename this folder? Would I have to reinstall Lion and wipe all the data to do this? Or is there a simple way to rename the folder.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Broken Home Folder - How To Log Back In

Jun 1, 2012

I'm having serious issue on my MacPro 10.7.4, as I can't log in any more. My setup: System 10.7.4 on MacPro SSD (internal SSD)Data on my software RAID0 on 2 internal HD. Unfortunately I had the bad idea to move my home folder on the RAID0 cluster. One of the 2 hard drives just died, making impossible to reach any data on this side! So now, I just get an error trying to log back, as I guess the system can't find my home folder.

I just set up a second partition on my SSD, installed lion again and boot from here. So I can have access to the original SSD file system.I'd like to modify some files to update the path to a new home folder. (not on the RAID obviously but still on SSD). Could be done by terminal / command line. I used to know how to do that on linux by modify /etc/password, but I can't find the same files on OSX.How to modify / update the system user path, so I could boot again from by previous partition?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Possible To Copy A User's Home Folder On Machine

Mar 20, 2012

I want to sync my MacBook Pro w/ my iMac (both running Lion).I want to be able to come home from a business trip and have all of the new / edited info on my MacBook (new photos (organized & edited), changes to various folders in "documents", random files/folders added to desktop, changes made in iTunes, etc) show up on my iMac, which I work off of while at home. And of course the reverse - sync the changes on my iMac to my MacBook before I travel again.Wouldn't it be possible to copy a User's Home Folder on Machine 1 to an external drive, and then use that to replace / update the Home Folder on Machine 2?Or possibly do a complete Disc Clone (i.e. Super Duper) of Machine 1, and then use that to "restore" Machine 2? What are the pros and cons?And any better solutions? I realize that my proposals may be over simplified, but also that my goal must be a common one.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Home Folder Sync Not Working?

Apr 10, 2012

I have a lion server set up on a mac mini. I have set up an OD to manage network accounts through the server app.  My workflow for setting up users is: 

1. using the server app add a new user

2. I have a home folders users directory set up under file sharing and set to be available for home directories - so I select this share as the home folder for the user

3. I user the WGM app to then set up mobiility through the preferences tab to create always and to sync the home and preferences

4. I check that the home folder is set correctly under the user account in WGM 

When I log in to the client machine (regardless of whether or not I have first logged in on the server or not) the client presents an error saying that it can not log in and can not access the server at that time.  The client stays on the user login screen. 

If I then change the users home folder on the server to local I can then log in on the client machine and create the account.  If I elect not to create the home folder on the client machine the rainbow ball of death occurs and the machine hangs.  So I instead log in and select to create the local home folder. I then log out of the user and change the user setting on the server to point the home folder to the correct share instead of on the local setting. 

I then log back on to the client machine and can log in without any problems.  HOwever, I get an error message if I try to sync saying that the home folder is not accessible.  This is despite the fact that the home folder, and the server et al, can be mounted in finder and I can copy and paste documents etc to and from the server.  I have full and expected access to the server and the associated storage. For some reason home sync continues to say that the home folder can not be found (in fact that the server can not be found) whenever I try to sync. I have the OD bound to the client machine and have no problems seeing the users and being able to access the OD from the client machine.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Copy A User's Home Folder To A Flash Drive

Apr 5, 2012

I am trying to write /Users/xxx to a Lexar 8g flash drive.  Its size is under 1g. I can easily put subfolders onto the drive, but if I try to feed it the entire home folder it tosses it out again.  I don't know how to use Finder to reach the /Users folder, where xxx is just a subfolder, but I can do this from the terminal command line; however, then I got stuck on how to proceed: I tried to mount /dev/disk1 [which diskutil shows as its name]; each variation I'v tried runs into some problem: disk busy, not found, etc. I was using sudo commands, so I don't think it's a permissions problem.
