Can't find saved loops location, please help

Sat May 08, 2021 3:25 am

Hi, just made a clear big sur update, i've installed logic and etc. everything is fresh. So i had loops before and i wanted to store them, but i can't find 'user loops' folder anymore. I've created just now random new loop and saved it, and there is no folder, no nothing, not a clue where it went, and i can't even find it in finder, i mean in 'apple loops' there is no folder that in which the new loop could have been saved.

I want to upload my previous loops to that folder but i can't even find a loop i just saved. Please help.

How did you save the loop exactly?

Never mind, i've found it but it seems that the reason i could not find it is that 'Library' folder is GREY and that was the reason i couldn't find in with finder search, it was not displaying that grey/broken/damaged folder. I am trying to fix that grey folder for now.

Oh ok I see. Your user library folder should be hidden, so it's not surprising it's grayed out, there's nothing to fix. You should be able to access it from your Go menu (if it doesn't appear, hold down the Option key).

Sorry but i do not know what is go menu, is it in lpx or generally in mac? Either way i've held the option button and nothing happened. Here are some photos of what i see.

Really important thing is that, before installing new big sur, with my old files and older catalina in fact i could find these saved loops, and simply find 'user loops' in finder right a way, but now this greyish thing stops the search, are you sure it must not be fixed, because it doesn't make any sense.

Thanks anyway, you were right about the hidden default folder, I made it visible and all is fixed now. Have a nice day!

Good to hear! :)

The Go menu is one of the main menus at the very top of your screen when you're in the Finder app:
