I think somehow
Server.app screwed up my
~/Downloads folder after I tried to share it over the network and fudged with permissions and now I can't open it at all.
The weird thing is the folder is owned by my user and has the right permissions seemingly. It also only shows up under
ls if I
sudo, otherwise it is invisible.
- Removing the share and changing permissions
- Repairing disk permissions using Disk Utility
Ultimately I avoided the issue by by
sudo mv everything out into Downloads2 and
sudo rm -rf Downloads then renaming Downloads2. How can I prevent or properly fix this if it happens in the future?
