    ExtFS is working reasonable well on my mac. But on some folders I do not see all the files in the finder that should be visible there. Some files and folders do not show up in de finder.
    Is this a permission problem?
    Strange thing is that if I use mucommander (other filemanager) that I do see the other files and folders.
    Is there a setting that I have missed somewhere?

    I have the same problem also.
    There is one directory on my drive that will not show up in Finder. I see it in the Terminal window, and can read/write to it that way.
    I thought that maybe the Mac was treating this directory as hidden, so I ran the command 'chflags -R nohidden directoryName' in the Terminal. I also tried the command 'defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles YES' to force Finder to show all hidden files. I re-launched Finder but it still does not show the directory.

    It's nice to hear that someone else is having the same problem. I did try the same thing. Hoping it was a settting somewhere.
    No solution so far.

    My ExtFS did an auto-update to version 9.8 last month, and that seems to have fixed this problem for me.
