    Library Folder is GONE
    I have no idea when or how (though it was probably by my hand). I cannot find my library folder and I need too for some operations I'm trying to run.

    I troubleshot the issue and as a result I re-installed my OS:

    Processor 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5
    Memory 6 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
    Graphics Intel HD Graphics 3000 384 MB
    Serial Number C17GC6LMDRJ7
    Software Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5 (11G63)

    This did not fix the issue.

    I went into the terminal and entered: -chflags nohidden ~/Library

    This did not fix the issue.

    I have gone to "Go" in the finder and Library is NOT listed nor does the ALT trick work.

    So after re-installing the OS my Library is STILL missing. Any tips that I haven't already tried? The terminal method does not work, the "Go" method does not work, and the OS re-install does not work.

    Specs:
    Late 2013 27" iMac, iPad 3, iPhone 6s+, iPhone 6+, 3 iPods, Sierra
    The correct terminal command is:

    chflags nohidden ~/Library/

    It has to be there as you can not remove it.
