Hi,

 

For several days, I show lots of grey folders in finder "Macintash HD" like :

- bin

- cores

- etc

- sbin

- usr

- volumes

 

One of my usb drive appears in grey too.

 

Curiously, I can't double click on each grey folder but if I do a "right click -> Open", every works.

 

Does anybody know this issue ? My user account is admin, I've tried repair perms, verify drives etc... but the problem stills.

 

Regards.

    Sounds like you have made your invisable items visable. Used anything like TinkerTool or Cocktail or such?

    Hi Pete,

     

    Tanks for the reply. Yes, my invisible items are visibles but for a long time, I did this with terminal.

     

    Just for few days, lots of items are just grey in finder, my external drive too !

     

    I don't understand how...
