OS X is a MULTI-USER OS where each user has his/her own HOME DIRECTORY that is NOT (or should not unless you've really screwed things up) accessible to the other users of the system. If you have other people using the system you SHOULD NOT fear them seeing your 'special files' (wink wink nudge nudge say no more say no more) since the only way that could ever happen is if you left your account logged-in (not a good thing when trying to hide things) or if you shared your password with someone you were trying to hide things from (again not the smartest thing you could do).
Good luck, and I for one am pulling for you to not get caught even though my wife hopes you do.
Ok, the reason for what I am asking is to use the Mac Mini @ my office as LAN disk drive. The hidden stuff would be some files that not all the employees should see obviusly.
The thing is that I can't hide those folders ( I don't need them to be hidden for security, like I said I nedd them to be hidden because they bother my eyes).
It seems theat with no software am not able to hide the system folders (Desktop and Library), because this actually this programs change the name of the directory.
Is there any application that makes folders transparent?
