How do I hide a folder?

First, note that hiding a folder with CBFS Filter doesn't remove its contents from the disk. The data remains available if the user boots in safe mode or another OS or just moves the drive to another computer.

If this is OK for you, you can set rules or use callbacks to (A) hide the folder during enumeration by skipping its name (if you use callbacks) and (B) prevent the enumeration of the contents of this folder. Step B is necessary to prevent the OS from directly accessing the folder contents (e.g., if the user knows the name of the file inside the folder being hidden).
