An icon with a little arrow in the corner is an alias. Try the instructions above, but with two preliminary steps:  Shut down and restart your Mac, in case your Finder was misbehaving. [0'] Trash all aliases in the FB_pkg_4_4_3 folder. Then step  will not replace anything, but will leave you with one alias named "FBtoC Folder". The name has no leading or trailing spaces, and contains exactly 1 ordinary space. Double-clicking that alias should open up the FBtoC_1.1 folder. Robert P.
