I don't know how it happened, but I have an ever-repeating folder.

This means: When I open the folder, the same folder is in the original folder and again and again...

Neither First Aid nor Norton Utilies can fix this. It is not possible to simply delete it. My last attempts ended up with a serious damage in the directory structure of the HD.

Does anyone know what to do? I don't want to initialize my HD.

Thanks a lot.

I recommend Diskwarrior. It has saved me from many situations that Norton couldn't handle.
