A few days ago, I noticed that my hard disks (both built in and external) failed to appear in the sidebar. I double checked Finder Prefs, and the checkmarks are correctly checked to "show Hard Disks / External Disks" etc. But they still do not show. I have rebooted in safe mode. verified the disk, reset the PRAM to no avail.


If I gesture up and show the spaces mode and choose an EMPTY desktop (not one with open finder windows), I can see the icons of the drives on the desktop and work from there. But I much prefer being able to access my finder items from any finder window. Weird, I know....


Any help would be appreciated.
