    In the classic/PowerPC days I used ResEdit and just 'hid' the folders. So whats the Mac OS X /intel version these days?

    Any suggestions, your experiences/solutions appreciated.

    I usually use Terminal to rename them so they have a "." in front of the name:
    Code:
    mv hideme.txt .hideme.txt

    I was hoping that there was a way to lock folders in OSX.
