I’m trying to live up to my role as my wife’s Mac tech support. ;) LOL
However, as often is the case, I’m failing so this post.
As the subject indicates, she is missing those three folders. She has the aliases of those in her User folder but not the originals. On my similarly setup computer, the Original of those alias folders are in my Dropbox folder.
This is her situation:
When she does a screenshot, it disappears. Can’t find it. And downloads from Mail are also missing. They are set to do to Downloads
When you double click on one of those three folders, you get a dialog box with: The operation can’t be continued because the original item for “Downloads” can’t be found."
Cmd-I: says it is an alias with the Original: /Users/lou/Downloads. Lou is the name of her user folder.
He computer is backed up using Dropbox and CCC.
Any assists are appreciated both for my wife and for me so I can retain my reputation for assisting at least some of the time.
Her system: iMac running OS Monterey.
