    @ CooL
    That's for windows, he is on mac, and that guide is so old it makes dirt look young.

    @LitleJunior
    I'm not sure what you problem is, but I'll tell you how I fixed my issues when I upgraded to the newest Mac OS.

    It used to be in the folder Hard Drive -> Users -> YourUser -> library -> application support -> blizzard -> starcraft2 blah blah blah, but they changed the new OS to hide the library in your user file. Just open starcraft2, go to your replays, click one and then click the button that says "show in finder". Backtrack that file path until you get to the hidden library folder, then make an alias of that folder. Now you can access your application support for other games as well. I know that is probably not your problem, but maybe it will help.

    What Jaw said above works.

    Also, if you're on the newest OSX you can gain access to your user library (which as Jaw says is hidden by default) simply by clicking on the GO menu in your finder and hitting the Alt key - you'll see the library menu temporarily pop up under the GO list.

    Once in your library you can do a search for "notd" making sure to search only within the Library folder and not the rest of your HD. This should help you find the notdbank5.SC2Bank files. Drag the encasing folder into your Favourites bar on the left of your finder window for easy access.

    And as Jaw says with the alias, you can also drag your user library into the same Favourites list on the finders' left bar along with your Desktop, Applications, AirDrop etc... making your Library folder instantly accessible for any future needs.

    Now you have a couple of options...

    Open terminal
    Type/copy n paste:
    chflags nohidden ~/Library/
    Library folder is now shown.

    If it says permission denied:
    sudo chflags nohidden ~/Library
    Enter password

    You welcome mac newbs :D.



    ___________________________________
    Also searching for notdbank5.sc2bank
    Open enclosing folder takes you to the notd bank folder.
    Finder
    View
    Show path bar
    Under the open folder it will show path if you right click on the one that says 1-S2 (or 2-S2 etc)
    Open enclosing folder.
    You are located in the bank folders for all regions.

    Making alies, macro or adding to sidebar for quick access is good when playing across servers

    What I don't understand is why Apple felt the need to hide the library folder. Does anyone know why they did this?

    Its apple, if they can restrict something they will do it.

    There are couple of reasons:
    1. Deleting certain files from the library folder can destroy the OS in such a way the only way to repair is to go to apple. For apple newbs its hidden to avoid this.
    2. Library is Mac OSs root folder, if you don't know how to show the folder you probably shouldn't be there.
    3. All the stuff that is there most likely isn't yours. Following apple's logic: "Just because you bought it doesn't make it your property. You didn't make it, it is not yours." Which is the same reason the apple machine you've bought... isn't yours.
    4. What hip said.

    I can top that part!
    If you mess with any data,software,hardware you shouldn't have and you were to bring your apple pc/phone to the store for repairs, even if warranty or not, chances are your product will be disabled or a virus will be put to destroy all data inside. Pretty neat eh? Oh wait wait wait.... best of all.. There's nothing the customer can do about it.

    Unless you are lucky and the "apple genius" you meet is a nice guy/girl which will actually help etc. :p

    Tips for the future:
    Homemade > apple

    Not the library folder in the hard drive, the library folder in your user file, but thank you for the info.

    User library is where cracking etc takes place. :) np.

    To those struggling with the 'hidden' user Library folder... here are 19 ways to find it and/or make it permanently visible - there are even apps that make it really easy for those unfamiliar with Terminal commands, Shell scripts, Alias', Symbolic links or other 'tricks':

    http://www.macworld.com/article/1161156/view_library_folder_in_lion.html

    However, Scorpione makes some very valid points in that fiddling around in the Library (or anyone one of the three primaries), if you don't know what you're doing can really mess up your system - hence schmapple hiding it.

    hope this helps you.

    DO NOT USE 3RD PARTY APPS to show library.
    Using terminal to unlock it is 100% safe.

    Thanks,I will use Terminal but what is Terminal and where can I find it?


    for the real: I am 12 year old boy....thats why I need a lot of help.....including about mac

    Applications, utilities, terminal.


    Well, in technical terms: terminal allows you to control the underpinnings of the UNIX based OS.
    In poor words..... Its a program. Which is mainly use to manipulate with your mac. There are premade commands done to facilitate the use of an user that has above average computing skills.
    Hmmm I could be not saying it exactly right. However:

    Whenever you are bored check it out. Helps to learn about macs.


    Also using search engines such as google help. You just ask it a question: how to restart my imac and it appears. Other stuff won't appear straight away and require in depth searching.
