On 8 October, CNET reported that some users’ home directories suffered random munchie Snow Leopard (SL) attacks. Yup, the world’s most advanced operating system is eating its way into the hard disks of a select user base. Apple are aware of this issue and are taking strides to correct the problem — which is reckoned to occur only in “extremely rare cases” — but a problem like this which did not exist in Leopard shouldn’t plague even a small minority of Snow Leopard users. According to Apple’s Discussion forum, affected Snow Leopard users have experienced random data wipes of the directory of most import: the home directory. iPhone users, too, are affected; the device’s data too, is backed up in the home directory: users/Library/Application Support/Mobile Sync/Backup.
