10.5: A fix for hidden Unix files showing in file system root
Authored by: pheed on Nov 20, '07 09:50:34PM

Another thing you can do is create a file called .hidden in the top level of your hard drive.

Open Terminal
cd /
nano .hidden

Now type in the names of every file, symlink and directory you'd like hide. Hit return after each line. Control+o to save the file. Now log out and log back in. The files will be invisible. Enjoy!
