    hidden files shown in gallery section of mobile web server

    Tested in a Nokia N95 with SW version 11.0.026 and 1.0 version of the beta mobile web server :


    When you create a folder with some videos for example in the phone's memory card and then change the folder's attributes so the folder is hidden , the phone's gallery can not see the folder and it's contents .
    Still , in the mobile web server , this folder is read and shown through the gallery section .

    How is this possible?

    Apparently you have a file-browser that allows you to set the attributes of a directory?
    Still, in the mobile web server, this folder is read and shown through the gallery section. How is this possible?
    It seems then that the MWS does not honor the hidden attribute, but shows all folders that it finds.

    The freeware version of Y-browser can change the attributes in files and folders .
    The same can me done with a desktop PC and a card reader for files or folders in the phone's storage card and still MWS will show this files .

    "Hiding" something from the phone's gallery is usefull for practical and "security" reasons.

    When it comes to MWS , creating new albums and adding each picture in them instead of granting access to everyone to the phone's storage card for example takes up more time and lacks the option to instanly share a photo taken a few moments ago .
