Suddenly, no local files appear in my local files pane.
They are very present on the hard drive.
What should I do please. DESPERATE
thanks Steve Z
It should be an easy fix.
Click the menu in the upper right of the files tab for that site and choose Site > Recreate Site Cache.
If that doesn't do it...
Go to Site > Manage Sites
Click on the site that is missing it's files.
Click Next until you get to "Where on this computer do you want to store your files"
Browse to the folder on your HD.
EDIT: Also, make sure you have the left hand dropdown in the Files tab set to your site and right hand drop down set to Local View
Very nice thank you. Alas, no effect.
That's why I am getting desperate.
The foler is there, but there is no arrow to
access all the sub stuff.
"put" does not allow me to select anything but the ENTIRE site.
OK it turns out the entire local folder IS empty, and odder yet,
on the back up drive, even the empty folder does not exist.
Is this a virus behavior?
Currently I am downloading the site from the site.
So you have no site files on your Hard Drive at all or are they possibly under a different folder with the same name?
DW can sometimes "forget" where you browse to when setting the "Where on this computer do you want to store your files". When it does that, it creates a new folder with whatever name you used in the beginning of the setting up of the site.
Suddenly I have no site files on my hard drtive, and the back up folder dissappeared altogether.
"Did you define a local site in DW before you began GETTING files from remote server?"
Site definitions remain the same, ftp engagement remains in tact.
"you can click on it to expand it"
there are no files to expand.
"DW can sometimes "forget" where you browse to"
Folder was there, just suddenly empty.
I'm starting to think I have an OSX8.2 finder/software issue.
Three days ago, the finder would not even open the site, and
when i clicked on it, it would jump to previous folder, never
allowing me to open my site. The disappearing act 2 drives
has me extremely flummoxed (ever usew that word?).
Currently I cant even use Bridge
Also check your Console.app to see what kind of messages/errors might are being generated - that might give you some clues about what might be happening to your system. Based on your description though it's sounding like a hardware failure of some sort.
