naturally, this post relates to OSX.
i have lately had a few of my third-party externals' .mxo files mysteriously become folders, and no longer visible as externals by max. anyone else had this issue? there are too many to name them all individually here.
Mac Intel OSX 10.5.8, MMJ 5.1.5
i completely reinstalled my OS a few weeks ago, and Max of course. i think it has been happening since then only. any ideas before i attempt prefs trash and reinstall of max? (i do hate to do that).
