Does anyone have any experience/comments on storing FM files in hidden folders (using Norton Disk Doctor to change the attribute to invisible) on OSX.

I have played with some test files and it seems easy enough to open these files by script.

I thought it may be useful for some "low-sensitivity" files - more really to perhaps prevent files from being being shifted or deleted accidentally.

I look forward to your comments.

Cheers, Murray

Hi, Murray! That seems like a nice little solution to the "can't lock a folder in OS X" problem. It's been many years since I've played with file/folder visibility since it's so easy to find invisible files nowadays... Nice, though. Hmm... I wonder what would happen if files were copied to "invisible" directories only accessible from the command line? Maybe I'll check it out someday, but you might as well get your money's worth out of Norton, eh? Just don't forget about them and trash the parent folder.
