/tmp folder is used by the Mac OS apps to store temporary data. Any a week old content in the folder is earsed as well as every time you restart your machine. I accidently deleted it. Not a big deal, but any app that writes into it will throw an exception.
tmp folder, using
mkdir won’t help because
tmp is not a folder it’s a symbolic link to
Therefore to restore it you need to create the symbolic link again:
ln -s /private/tmp/ /tmp
That’s it. Hope it helps!comments powered by Disqus
