I'm trying to fix a Null Pointer Exception I'm getting when running Minecraft on my Mac. Some instructions I've found said that I needed to do two things:

  • Uninstall/Reinstall Java
  • 'Nuke' the Minecraft folder

I've done the first, but I am unsure how to delete the Minecraft folder.

So how can I delete (nuke) a Minecraft folder?

    I think it's just asking you to delete the entire folder. – rikitikitik Oct 25 '13 at 8:49
  • Well uninstalling Java and reinstalling the latest isn't really going to do much. Do as recommended Nuke the whole minecraft folder. It sounds like its become corrupted. – Popeye Oct 25 '13 at 10:57

Minecraft resides in the Application Support directory in your library. To delete it, Open Finder, press Shift-Command-G, and type ~/Library/Application Support/ in the dialog that appears. Then you can do as you wish with your Minecraft installation.
