TotalCommander is hidding all my dot files/folders

Post by *NeV3rKilL »

How can I show dot files or dot folders?

I have several .git folders and TC is ignoring them.

I don't have any filter and show hidden files and system files is checked.

I can go inside those folders if I type them manually on the browse bar but they never appear on the window.

Did you accidentally add them to the ignore list (see settings dialog)?

NeV3rKilL,
Are you perhaps connected to an FTP server?
Net - FTP Show Hidden Files.

Mal angenommen, du drückst Strg+F, wählst die FTP-Verbindung (mit gespeichertem Passwort), klickst aber nicht auf Verbinden, sondern fällst tot um.

.git folders usually have the "hidden" attribute. To see them, go to menu Configuration - Options - Display and choose the option to show hidden files.

So the hidden attribute is most likely not the reason.

It depends on whether he has enabled them in Total Commander or the Explorer. I had cases where users showed them in the Explorer and were surprised that TC didn't show them.

Sure, that could be what NeV3rKilL meant, even though those options are worded very differently in Explorers Setup.
