I have a NAS, which I use for storing my old photos. When moving the remainder of my 2016 photos, the following problem occurred, but without any error message during the move operation. The move operation was done by holding the cmd-button while dragging and dropping in Finder. In Finder on OS X version 10.11.6, the directory looks like this:
Using Finder, I can enter directories like
2016-10-15, but not the ones with different icons.
2016-11-27 is a directory, and
2016-12-01 should not be shown twice, but is a result of the erroneous move operation.
I have researched online to figure this out, but have not yet found a solution. One of the possible explanations was extended attributes. I ran a
xattr -c * to clear all of the attributes. This did remove the attributes, but didn't solve the problem.
I can enter the directories using Terminal.
machinename:2016 user$ ls -al 2016-11-27 total 34600 drwxr-xr-x 1 user staff 264 24 Jan 21:18 . drwxrwxr-x 1 user staff 7606 16 Mar 20:14 .. -rw-r--r-- 1 user staff 1339112 24 Jan 21:05 2016-11-27 08.47.29.jpg -rwxrwxrwx 1 user staff 12069896 27 Nov 16:58 DSC_0151.JPG
Any other ideas on how to fix this?
