Downloads are stored as hidden files

  • Hi!

    I've got a weird problem on my Mac 10.7 with Opera 19.0. I download files, images, videos, whatever, and sometimes (in fact quite often) Opera saves them with the "hidden" flag. So the files are there, but I can't see them unless I tell Finder to show hidden files. I made a clean install twice (with all Opera files removed from the Library), nothing changed.
    Did anyone else experience this phenomenon?

    Thanks in advance

  • I have never heard of this problem before. To me, it sounds like a conflict with a third-party application.

    Can you test and see if you can reproduce the problem from your system’s Guest account?

  • Really this is the same problem I was facing 3 months back. My all files were hidden whatever I had downloaded were missing. I was looking for hidden files app similar to this one http://www.showhiddenfilesmac.com, that can easily help me out to display the hidden files I have downloaded.
    I have tried,

    defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE

    defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles FALSE

    but it does not work for me.
