Viewing hidden files on Mac OS X
Enable scanning of hidden files in Mac OS X can be a fairly simple command. In the terminal we enter:
defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles -bool true
If you are tired of this "feature" in the terminal, enter:
defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles -bool false
Another method, While in the Finder, click:
and enter the path to the folder we want to look into.
