Restore hidden user folder.

Overview

UserFolderRestore unhides your hidden (invisible) user folder after installing OS X 10.9.3.

Note: The user folder may hide again after Restart. Please set this in login items so it auto runs, or just keep it on your desktop so when you need your user folder you can just click on it. There is another method of creating an alias to your user folder which wont go away on restarts, but for security reasons Apple support advises against it.

useful enough. does NOT restore the Shared folder (in Users). and just a temp fix...but better than nothing!

Fortunately Apple has updated iTunes to 11.2.1 which fixes the hidden User folder issue (strange that an iTunes update, in conjunction with Find My Mac managed to cause such a bizarre issue....). Regardless, this was a great piece of software for the short time it was needed!

version 1.5 shows as version 1.0 after downloading; just letting you (the developer) know. but it works; my Users folder (AND the Shared folder in that) both are visible. thanx for this! amazing to see people step up so quickly when an issue arises (while we wait for the behemoth Apple to come up with a fix). why i love the mac community...

Huh? I must have missed something as my user folder is still visible in 10.9.3. Are there special cases where it goes invisible? To the dev: despite the fact that I might not need your A-S, I want to thank you for writing and posting it for those who need it. That's really great of you.
