Fix a possible 'disappearing file on Desktop' bug
Authored by: cagg on Mar 19, '05 03:25:28PM

I had a similar thing happen to me during this past week, although I think the trouble went a little further than this. I had a list of mp3 files in my Music folder and every time I clicked on one, the file would disappear. Even in Terminal the files were not there! I was wondering what the hell was going on. And it wasn't all files in that folder, just files from a few weeks ago. I decided to reboot and pray. That fixed it - they were back. (It's also possible that having journalling enabled on my drive helped.)

I would bet this is just a display issue.

I would use an app like Finder'Fresher before deleting anything.
