    Anyone know how to hide the "Microsoft User Data" Folder in Lion? The hide in ~/Library/Preferences trick doesn't work - as I don't believe there's a Library folder in the user folder anymore under Lion.

    Any work arounds would be great! Thanks!

    Hiding the folder with the following worked for me:

    chflags hidden ~/Documents/Microsoft\ User\ Data

    Enjoy!

    There is a Library folder on the user level, but in order to access it, or view its contents, you have to either hold option when clicking on the Go menu from Finder, or choose Go To Folder and type ~/Library.

    Thank you soooo much, I've always hated having that folder there!
