Show hidden files and folders

Defines whether hidden files and folders are displayed. The names of hidden files and folders are preceded by a dot. The local Files apps require such files and folders for internal purposes. In order to not endanger the functionality of the local Files apps, such hidden files and folders must not be changed or deleted.

Adding files with identical names

Defines whether a new file or a new version of a possibly existing file with the same name should be created.

  • If Add new version is enabled, a new version of the existing file will be created.

  • If the Add new version and show notification is enabled, a new version of the existing file will be created. As soon as the process is finished, you will receive a notification.

  • If Add separate file is enabled, a new file will be created. The file name is enhanced with a consecutive number.
