I recently ran DiskWarrior. It found over 300 files that were "unlinked". I took that to mean they were "alias" files. That was no big deal since I've been doing a bit of housecleaning.


The REAL mystery was where they were found.


They were in a hidden directory called 'sbin' which was located one level down on my system disk.


I fired up File Buddy and discovered a whole bunch of hidden files and directories in the same vicinity. They are ALL unix-style stuff such as 'var', 'usr', 'man', etc.


As far as I can recall, I've never loaded X onto this disk. So where did these files come from? Is it safe to toss them out?
