hide @eadir

Postby madcow » Thu Jun 10, 2010 8:29 pm

I upgraded my ds106e with a 1tb (WD10ears) disk. It all works and i copied all my files by connecting the old disk to my desktop (ubuntu) and copying all the files over the network to the new disk. The problem now is that all the @eadir's in the photo folders are visible. How can I hide them again?

Greetings madcow,

@eaDir contains metadata of thumbnail information aims for shortening of work load on re-creating thumbnails in PhotoStation once the image files are full restored back to the Photo shared folder.

I'm sorry to inform you there's no other way to hide those @eaDir as it is based on the design. To prevent from copying @eaDir have to manually select the file that you wish to be copied.

Your understanding will be well appreciated.

And what about the file .hidden with this content set in each directory where a @eaDir exist :

Code: Select all


Under Linux, this tip hide the directory.
The point is how to set automaticaly this .hidden file during the thumbs generations ?
