Default Snow Leopard has minor bug

Seems that Snow Leopard sometimes has a habit of tidying up the hard drive.

Oops!

Glad I am safeguarded by my lifelong habit of procrastination!

I upgraded about 10 days after Snow Leopard came out with no problems. Of course my mini does not have a guest account and nobody uses it but me. I also have an external hard drive devoted to Time Machine.

Whilst this is quite a serious fault (although you do have a backup, don't you?), it only occurs if you:

1. upgraded an older OS rather than installing on a clean drive.
2. Had guest accounts enabled before you upgrade.

Version 10.6.2 is due out soon, which is likely to fix this issue.

Well, I used to have a backup - until an OS upgrade meant that Time Machine wouldn't recognise my network drive.
