File Search > Navigation hide chflag hidden folders/files

Recommended Posts

Many folders in Finder I've marked as hidden with `chflags hidden` (usually folders I can't delete, things like ~/Pictures, ~/Adobe/, ~/Music). It would be awesome if Alfred's File Search > Navigation mirrored this and didn't show these folders.

Thanks for the reply!

Unfortunately didn't worked for me. Tried added that tag as a cmd+i document/spotlight comment, a Finder tag. I also added the folders to Spotlight Privacy. I reloaded cache via `Reload` command, and by `Settings > Advanced > Reload Cache` --

Does this work for you? Maybe I just need to `rebuild macOS metadata` or actually restart my machine.
