So I was on my computer, and I then had a lot of lag for a lot of my tabs opened in the safari browser. Anyways, I force quit everything, and I also relaunched finder. Now, a lot of my files are not there. Like, when you open finder, you do not see any of the tabs on the side of the finder. (Now, this part is MC related), I tried to get my Minecraft folder in Applications Support. I did not see it.... It is not there.
Now, I am really nervous/scared/pissed because I have saves in there from 2012 (multiple, actually. I do not have them backed up) and a big map I was working on for 2 years since 2014(I have this one backed up however)
I have multiple questions-
1. What happened? And what screwed up my finder tabs
2. Where can I access my application support
3. I just want to get all of my saves, where are they.
4. Should I restart my computer?
This is the funny thing. The files exist, I can't find them though. I can go onto my Minecraft, start up MC launcher, and get onto Minecraft fine (1.8). When I go onto single player, ALL of the saves were still there. That was weird.
