If I create a directory, it remains visible until Rockbox or dircache is restarted. As a result, if I want to create a directory and move some stuff into it, I don't have to show all files. One could call this a bug, but for me, it's more like a useful feature. I sometimes rearrange music like that, and I prefer not having to show all files to do it.

To be honest, if you don't want to see a directory, why is it there? And if it's there because of e.g. the OF, why didn't you just set it to hidden?

I'm with Frank here – I don't see much point in hiding empty directories. Instead a patch to allow setting the hidden flag on files / folders might be a nice / useful thing.

Than you for comments.

The above patch is my first step.
Second step, I'm planning to filter out non-visible direcories.
For example, if I select SHOW_PLAYLIST, then filetree filters out directories not including *.m3uX.
Any objection? ;)

# I think setting the hidden flag is also needed. Because none of the linux GUI file managers can set the hidden flag for vfat.
# Only mtools which is very old school can do it.

This is v2 patch which supports filtering out non-visible directories.

All comments are welcome.
