When I go to eject drives using Alfred (usually installer DMGs) I've been seeing this Volumes/firmwaresyncd.Ux5C91 as the first suggestion. This has persisted across many reboots. It's not going away. A screenshot is attached below. I don't see the supposed volume in Finder, GUI Disk Utility, nor via Terminal command "diskutil list". As far as I can tell the first hit with the curved return arrow is Alfred's best guess or perhaps a cached shortcut to a volume that no longer exists or something like that. When I did a search for the volume, I came across a similar question. It's not spelled exactly the same as mine but it's similar enough, randomly generated suffixes are common enough. I'm alarmed about the idea of having a hack on my system. I suspect it's much more mundane. Perhaps a cache isn't clearing in Alfred, or it's seeing a "secret" recovery partition or something. What can I do to get to the bottom of this?
I've been a big user of both KM and Alfred for quite some time now. One thing that I love about both of these tools is how they can supplement each other. For example you are forced to using your mouse to create objects in Alfred Preferences. I hated that. So I created macros to help me create objects in Alfred from KM either through keystrokes or searching for an action directly from Alfred (https://github.com/iansinnott/alfred-maestro). Here is a quick screencast of it in action : http://quick.as/4YyZioqQB I will publish quite a lot of these little macros on my GitHub page soon. I am also self documenting my own workflow in form of mind maps. I still have a lot to fill for it but with time I will have everything documented. For example here are ways in which I utilise my applications: https://my.mindnode.com/H1ejGz58APafNWf3s9MiD9E3CSpkxPTKapJSiNkA And here is how I utilise Karabiner and its keyboard customisations : https://my.mindnode.com/aGPrpzjuxth5dqytYpTzts9PZWKMFydgGt1Sjddz I hope some find it interesting.
