krpano Protect Tool -- Add Folder

Hello,

When using the Add Folder button, the Protect Tool also adds hidden system files to the file lists. For example, on Mac OS X the tool adds the hidden Finder database file ".DS_Store" to file lists.

I don't think that accidentally encrypting the .DS_Store file will have an adverse effect although I haven't performed that experiment yet.

If you have the opportunity in the future, would you please consider adding a file filter (or preference) to omit hidden system files with the Add Folder option?

Thanks,
Joe

Hi,

thanks for this hint!
I'm testing the most time on net-shares with disabled .DS_Store creation so I have overseen that problem!

That will be fixed in the next release,

best regards,
Klaus

Thanks for the good news. An easy fix I hope.

Those invisible UNIX files can be bothersome sometimes, but at least you don't need to worry about invisible directories.

Thanks,
Joe
