View Full Version : [all variants] hide specific files from system

September 29th, 2010, 10:32 PM
Hi all,
I'm on a dual boot with windows and I share files.
I have a bunch of desktop.ini and thumbs.db scattered everywhere. This is merely an annoyance, but I'm wondering if there's a way to hide these from the system.
I could make an alias for ls that ignores desktop.ini, but that might cause problems down the line, and what about for nautilus, konqueror, etc.?
Is there a more general way to do this?
