    Does the Windows OS use/create hidden files in a similar way
    that OSX add .DS_Store files?

    Basically I look for empty folders using BrowseFiles.
    However , Cinema "see" these hidden files (in OSX at least).

    Cinema will see all files regardless of their hidden property.

    Windows does not create hidden files similar to .DS_store files on the Mac.

    I see. Thou it is my understanding the Explorer can make Desktop.ini and thumb.db files "by itself". If they are hidden or not I can't tell since I'm on mac only.

    Thanks

    If I understand it right you only want to check folders that are created by yourself within the Cinema user folder. These folders will not have hidden files, don't they?

    That is correct. No hidden files -should- be written normaly, but -if- the user should look into that folder (just because they can:) ) and move or
    resize the window, a .DS_Store/Desktop.ini file will most likely be born.

    Couldn't you simply filter-out these files in your checking routine?

    Absolutely, if I knew all the possible names they could have:)
    On the Mac side, it is pretty straight forwards they all (to my knowledge)
    start with a dot. I don't think that there is such a generic rule for
    Windows.
