folder object

    hi i've been using the [folder] object for a long time, no problem. then i reinstalled the system the other day and accidentally trashed max's prefs, which i thought was no biggie, but then i just realised all my patches that use [folder] act weird: if i use Unix-like path messages like [/Users/potax/audio/whatever( , i get errors in the max window telling me that is not a folder, although it is, and i included it in the search path. i tried using max-like path messages like disc:Users:potax... and it worked. but my patches had unix-like messages cause they used to work til yesterday! max is the same version (4.2.1). is there a more *modern* version of [folder]? what am i missing? thanks y'all
