    Volumes Folder visibility!
    Hi all,

    Today I experienced one of the very, very few crashes on my iMac 2.0 Dual Core, with black screen and all forcing me to push the power button to turn off. Anyway, after I restarted, I had my Volumes folder visible in Finder, when I had never seen it before. Ok, so the first thing thought was: somethings wrong! And in fact, things werenīt running as smoothly as usual.
    My questions are: Is it ok that the Volumes folder was visible after the crash? Do I just hide it using SetFile, or could there be any underlying problem besides this show/hide tango?

    Does anyone have any idea as to what might of happened, and what I can do to solve the problem?

    Thanks alot in advance.

    Was there more than one volume attached when your iMac went down?

    I'd try to do a show hidden files then don't show hidden files from say a cocktail type app to see if that resolves it. If not I'd use SetFile.

    Hi Macswork,

    I was connected to a network and possibly (canīt remember) an external Firewire disk.
    Anyway, just used Setfile. Seems to be solved! Ran Onyx too and things are back to normal.

    Thanks alot for your help.
