hide lost+found

leave a comment »

Each ext2/3/4 partition will have a lost+found directory in it, which is used by fsck. If you delete it, it will be recreated the next time fsck runs on that partition.

The way to hide it in nautilus (not from the terminal, though) is to create a file called .hidden, and add the string lost+found in it. You can add a line for each folder you want to hide.
