As a safety measure ioFTPD will not display hidden files/folders. This can also be a feature at times.

Not sure why you need to display hidden folders, however there is no restriction on the full path being visible. Therefore you can have a dir like /hidden be hidden, but mount /hidden/visible in the VFS someplace and everything will work fine.

iv also tryed adding it to vfs and i cant see it on ftp
the reason i have my files in hidden folders so i dont mess around with them
i like to keep my hard drives clean and use hidden folders for ftp server
the only other way its worked is if i have it as a home dir but thats not what i want

I think you're missing the idea.

c:\hidden\visible1
c:\hidden\visible2

c:\ioftpd (can be hidden)
c:\ioftpd\FTP-ROOT-DIR (must be visible)

You can use a VFS like

"c:\ioftpd\FTP-ROOT-DIR" /
"c:\hidden\visible1" /dir1
"c:\hidden\visible2" /dir2

All top level dirs hidden when looking at the drive, but once inside the hidden dir everything visible and things will work fine.

Remember that when modifying the hidden/visible attribute you will need to let it change all files/folders recursively to visible, and then change JUST the top folder to hidden and not let it modify child directories.
