Apple releases iTunes 11.2.1, fixes hidden /Users directory bug

Apple has pushed out iTunes 11.2.1, a bug fix update to yesterday's iTunes 11.2.0 release that, for some people, caused their /Users directory to become hidden. If you had the problem, check out Software Update or the link below and get with the downloading.

This is a problem that Apple has acknowledged with a support posting:

OS X Mavericks: Users folder isn't visible after updating to iTunes 11.2


The folders listed below might appear to be missing after installing iTunes 11.2 on OS X Mavericks. This can happen if you have Find My Mac enabled in iCloud System Preferences.

Folders affected:

  • /Users
  • /Users/Shared


Update to iTunes 11.2.1 or later by running software update on your Mac.
