Fortunately this isn’t affecting anything I’m working on right now, but I just noticed that a number of my files are missing in my main library. They appear in the Eaglefiler view, but when I click on them I get the error message that the file doesn’t exist. And, indeed, the file is gone from the finder.
Whole folders are missing. I can’t figure out what common thread ties the missing folders together.
Also, weirdly, the “date modified” on the missing files, in Eaglefiler, has changed across the board to “December 31, 2000, 7 p.m.”
I’m sure I can go back in Time Machine and retrieve these, but this is odd and unnerving. I can’t think of anything I’ve done differently lately in Eaglefiler, except to print more pdf’s into my dropbox–where I keep my libraries–from my Windows laptop. (But not all the missing files originated that way.)
