I saw this issue raised in the 8 beta discussion but didn't see any response. Is there a way to get X1 to index hidden folders and files? I was able to do this in the previous version but not in 8.

I just stumbled across this limitation with V8 myself. I went looking for a file that I knew was there, and x1 showed no hits for the file name. I manually located the file in my user/appdata folder, which is setup to index file names. However, since the folder is set with a hidden property option, apparently x1 ignored it. The fact that x1 V8 can't handle this is disappointing. The fact that there's no warning to let users know that the product doesn't work on files in hidden folders is even worse. Please confirm that this WILL be fixed in a future release.

Yes, it's slotted for a future release.

Is this still the case four years later? Does X1 now index hidden files? Even Windows search does. How about if you change the Windows setting to "view hidden files." Does that make any difference?
