The folder name is "Instant Iron Palm"

I had it in the Vmware VirtualBoxShare folder and moved it to the desktop and now its vanished.

When I try to creat a folder with the same name it says such a folder exists already.

The folder is not showing when I check the hidden files box nor in any search from nautilis or the command line.

There is no preceding full stop in the file name. Its about 112 mb in the folder.

How the hell do I access it ???

open your desktop in nautilus and hit Ctrl + h to see the hidden files...it's still there just has a . in front making it hidden..:)

If you actually read my post you would see that is not the case

Its weird Ctrl H worked but there is no full stop.

Also checking the hidden files box and file search did not work. So thanks as Ctrl H worked but this must be a bug.
