Thanks Kaye. Did you ever figure out why your aliases were lost? Was there a pattern to the losses?

Hi Grant,
No, didn't take the time to look. I have a lot of them. I just leave them, until I come across one. Then I change it to a duplicate from the original.

Iíve used aliases on macOS for many years without problems. Thatís not to say that problems canít occur, however.

For those who may not be familiar with them, an alias in macOS is a small file that points to another file. As long as the original file the alias points to remains available, the alias will find it. It doesnít matter if the original file has been moved or renamed, as long as the original file is available, the alias will find it.

Hereís a much better explanation than Iím able to give.
