Talking is there a way to not show hidden folders?

Hi folks!

I got a quick question for everyone. Is there a way for me to hide windows hidden folders? Such as RECYCLER and System volume information. I know in some other ftp server software there are options to disable viewing of hidden windows files and folders. Is there a way to do the same with ioftpd?

Thanks alot!

You could use "SITE CHATTR +h <dir> M" (see http://www.inicom.net/pages/en.ioftp...tion.php?s=3#5) but...

You should use a subfolder like "D:\FTP" to store your files. Using the complete drive (read using "D:\") is a known source of problems.

I'm just also wondering this problem...
And it's not just the RECYCLER dir located at \ but also some other 'regular' hidden files or dirs...

I want ioFTPD to respect the folder properties specified by windows, that is, if the folder is hidden in explorer, then it should be hidden on the ftp site, if you "chattr" with every such dir, it is not very flexible and hard to maintain.
This is already a feature other FTP Server softs provide. And I think it's convenient though not very important.

I cant understand why u even have any hidden files in your ioFTPD dirs?
As Harm said use a subdir such as "D:\FTP" and go from there, never use C:\

Yes, it's rare. :P
But people are different, you don't like this doesn't mean all other guys in the world won't have this.
I just think providing such an option would be fine.

I doubt this will ever be hardcoded into the ftpd. It could easily be scripted for directories and perhaps for files. I will see what I can come up with tonight.
