Move and hide the Microsoft Office User Data folder
Authored by: A. Square on Feb 20, '04 11:10:33AM

I had to restart the finder for this change to take effect.

Also, if you don't have the backup issue that the author has, you can just make the existing folder invisible without creating the alias.

Move and hide the Microsoft Office User Data folder
Authored by: PancakeMan on Feb 20, '04 12:03:36PM

I tried simply to hide the folder using the command, and got an error message because of the spaces in the folder name. So I retyped the command, pressing Tab after Microsoft, and Terminal entered the required backslash prefix to the spaces automatically. After a relaunch of the finder (via Cmd-Opt-esc), the folder is invisible. Thanks!
