    Edit the globalsettings.ini or right click on the file and select Hidden.

    Easiest way is in Windows > Right click on folder/file > select 'hidden'
    then make sure that in AKAIO options, 'Show Hidden' is disabled

    This option is only for the most important. There is a bug when you put there too many folders / items to hide in globalsettings.ini -> it shouldnt work well.

    Use the WINDOWS options -> set the atribute of the needed file to HIDDEN, and in AKAIO disable Show hidden files... (this one works without any trouble)

    Globalsettings.ini is generated after the first boot of AKAIO.

    Now that you ran akAIO turn of the Acekard and plug the MSD into your computer & it should be there. Make sure the last hidden file has a , beside it like this
