    Hmmm…??? Some sort of encryption or just folder confusion.

    When did it start?

    Is this after a recent OS X install and did you use Migration Assistant or what??

    What window are you seeing this??? Are all windows the same??

    A few more details as a minimum might help.

    Do you have a previous backup that work properly???

    Sheesh…I'm running out of "?" mark characters!!!

    Hi Patrick. Thanks for responding! All my folders on my desktop have these numbers. Not in documents though.I'm suspecting a short cut or something similar. I have a time machine back up,but was hoping for a "simple" solution before restoring to previous date.Not recent update and no migration assistant. hope that helps!
