I hid a folder using eyeHide and it when I tried to open it, it said "The folder ".Jim" could not be open because you do not have sufficient acess privileges" and the read me on eyehide said if I was a little familiar with Terminal I could find the folder and I was wondering how I could do that. The folder is called ".Jim".
Thanks.

    you could try

    sudo cd .Jim

    That might work. Or you could use chmod to alter the permissions for the directory.

    chmod u=rwx .Jim

    The chmod command used in this way will make sure you (u) have read (r), write (w), and execute (x) permission on the directory/file that follows.

    These are pretty basic so not sure if either of these will work, but I suppose it is worth a shot.
