Having a few issues with finding a couple of video files after I've exported them. Am using Iexplorer and taking them off an Iphone, they seemed to import fine but then are just nowhere to be found but have taken up their allotted space on the hard disc... (some have worked fine)

Any suggestions?!

Nothing showing up in the finder... Mystery. Never had this before.

It looks like it might import it into your iTunes library. Check <your user>/Music/iTunes/.

Yeah, it's pretty weird. I've done it since with other videos and it's fine just dragged them onto the desktop and they transfered there. With this one I watched the HD space tick down and nothing appeared. Nothing in itunes either.

There isn't an app for searching files that have become 'lost' like this is there?

Honestly, if it's not where you dragged it to, chances are the copy failed and was rolled back so it's not on your Mac at all.

I'd re-copy.

I would've thought that except I sat there watching the HD size tick down in the finder so it's definitely occupying space... Strange, but maybe no solution I guess?

And that space is definitely still occupied?

It is indeed... It happened twice and I was carefully watching it the second time as I was wary.
