Create hidden yet easy-to-access folders
Authored by: gunnmjk on Aug 01, '05 10:03:14PM

Hmm I think I did this a while ago and made a folder invisible. Since then, I forgot where I put it (How stupid of me)! Is there any way to find out? Searching for invisible files/folders doesn't seem to work with spotlight.

You can open terminal and give this a shot:
find / -name '.??*'
You'll likely see a bunch of .DS_Store and such which you can grep out with something like:
find / -name '.??*' | grep -v '.DS_Store'
