Unhiding the Folder in Mac OS X:

If you no longer want the folder to be hidden anymore, here’s what to do:

As before, launch the Terminal application
Enter the following command:

chflags nohidden /path/to/folder/

Close the Terminal

As an example, to unhide a folder on the users desktop named “Secret Folder” the command would be:

chflags nohidden ~/Desktop/Secret Folder/


Again, the folder will become immediately visible to the desktop. If you blocked the contents from Spotlight, you may want to remove it from there as well to be able to find and locate as usual.
