Did a mysterious Lost & Found folder just appear on your Mac? It could mean trouble

[AUTOPLAY, grrr]

Glenn Fleishman, Macworld:

Joseph Pierpoint discovered a folder in his Trash labeled “Lost & Found.” When he opened it, he found it contained over 50,000 files. Worse, “Any attempts to send these files to the Trash are thwarted by interruptions that state that this kind of solution is infeasible for one reason or another.”

Some interesting details here about fsck and the underlying Unix folder named lost+found.

  • it is outright shameful that a leading mac news source hates its users so much that they continue to use intrusive ads like auto players.

    which is why it’s never coming off my ad block list. thanks, Apple!

      I still occasionally go there for articles by writers who still matter. Fleischman is one of them.
