    There haven't been earlier a ny reuquirement for hiding system folders. At this point it would be a new feature to add such. As a workaround just don't import the root folder of any drive.

    Personally I would vote for not showing hidden system folders. I preferr not to move my movies, they are on their own dedicated mirrored hard drive. Resetting watched status, etc. Blah!

    I have just noticed too the same behaviour as described by BugsBunny.
    Hidden files/folders are displayed in 1.1.0 Beta/RC, but in 1.0.2 files/folders wasn't displayed (worked correctly).
    I tried it in Videos.

    I vote too for hidding files/folders with hidden attribute set.
