Tiny Deathstars of Foulness

I noticed this because part of my postflight imaging task for my lab systems is to show all files, but in Mavericks, the defaults domain is case sensitive. So if you have you’ll need to edit it in such a workflow. So, for example, if you need to see hidden files, use the following commands: defaults write AppleShowAllFiles -boolean true killall Finder The problem with seeing hidden files is that you see a lot of stuff that you really probably don’t want to see. So to get back to a state where you don’t have to see all of the invisible files, use the following commands: defaults delete AppleShowAllFiles killall Finder
