hmm.. that's an interesting issue.. whether people really want FARR to search hidden files/folders.

i suppose i could add an option to let users say whether they want hidden files/folders returned -- would people like that?

Of course they all should be returned! If you'll add as an option to search only for visible ones, even better!

Is it just me or what? FARR does search and display hidden files and folders. But when I think about it, what is the point of having a hidden file or folder if you can't hide it from FARR?
It is impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious.
