Apple has released an update to iTunes in order to fix the /User folder disappearing issue.

Following the release of a series of beta firmwares, Apple has finally released OS X Mavericks 10.9.3 for Mac users last week.

As expected earlier, the update improves stability and security of Mac and adds support for 4K display. Besides, it brings ability to sync contacts and calendars between a Mac and iOS device with USB connections.

Following the update release, a few Mac users reported issues with /Users folder disappearing from the root directory of their file system in Finder.

There was no information as to how many Mac users are facing this issue. However, there is a workaround available through which users can get their /Users folder back.

This can be done by opening Terminal, which can be found in Spotlight and then run a command (sudo chflags nohidden /Users). Then press Enter and type Mac user account password. Once the process is done, /User folder should be seen in Finder, explains iPhone Hacks.
