I just moved some files to a new folder on a server that I was accessing on my Mac via VPN. I was quite surprised when it showed a whole bunch of files that I just moved that were locked for editing.
Here is the catch. The answer I found is below which DOES show hidden files on a Mac in Finder. However, my files were still showing as locked so I need to continue researching this.
Enable Finder to Show Invisible Files and Folders
Open the Terminal application in your Utilities folder. At the prompt enter or paste the following command line then press RETURN.
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
To turn off the display of invisible files and folders enter or paste the following command line and press RETURN.
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles FALSE
Alternatively you can use one of the numerous third-party utilities such as TinkerTool or ShowHideInvisibleFiles – VersionTracker or MacUpdate.
