    One thing on Vista that I have not been able to figure out, with XP, I
    could set one folder to show hidden files and other folder not to, with
    Vista, it seems that all folder options apply to everything or nothing,
    anyone know of a work around for this?

    Not in any previous version of windows. Hidden has always been a global

    The Show hidden files and folders is a global setting.

    To customize this setting, set it to Do not show Hidden files and folders.
    You can then remove or enable the Hidden attribute for any files and folders
    that you do or do not want to be available.
