    Default Solution for the hidden users folder after updating to 10.9.3

    Many users after installing the 10.9.3 couldn't see the users folder and subfolder. Some kind of bug made the folder hidden.
    In order to permanently resolve this issue, follow the following instructions I found on the Apple discussions forum:

    Start your computer with Alt + CMD + P + R in order to do a PRAM reset
    Then start your computer with CMD + R for recovery partition boot
    Launch Disk Utility and repair permissions. Quit Disk Utility and open Terminal (Utilities -> Terminal) and type :

    cd /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD (or the name of your partition)
    chmod 755 Users
    chmod 755 Users/Shared
    chflags nohidden Users
    chflags nohidden Users/Shared
