    hi neo,

    I guess Nokia PC Suite does not even show hidden/system dirs/files, that's end-user customer software (think about customers deleting some hidden files from symbian os dir),
    regards,
    Peter

    dear peter thanks for that suggestion ,
    but i think i am testing one application and i have got all capabilities certificate for testing , why not to go for devicing my own file manager software rather than paying for this software.

    hi,

    of course that you can,
    with Java api use FileConnection API:
    http://blogs.forum.nokia.com/view_entry.html?id=131
    (thanx to Gopal)
    but Java API won't let you access system folders and system files,
    with SymbianC++ for S60 you can have greater access to file system,

    hth,
    regards,
    Peter

    Actually even in C++, we can't access some protected folders, such as \sys\bin and private\<SID>.

    We can have access if we are granted a capability, called AllFiles. This is a manufacturer capability, and it seems no third party capability can request for this capability (well, may be they can, but the process must be very complicated).

    There is no way whatsoever to do it using Nokia PC Suite.

    There very little likelihood that it would ever be possible with Nokia PC Suite (so, as the saying goes: "don't hold your breath waiting for it").
