    I've created in my web site few folder starting with _  and I can't see the local folder and remote folder denying all update!!

    The advanced settings are marked "Show hidden files and folders".

    In Windows Explorer this folder is visible.

  • I assume "Show hidden files and folders" refers to your Windows settings, since that is not the terminology in EW3.

    You need to tell EW to do that in the Site settings:

    Site -> Site Settings, click the Advanced tab.  Uncheck "Hide files and folders that begin with an underscore character" in EW3 or EW4.

  • Tks solved now. But the Italian translation in EW3 was the contrary!!

  • I think much of the translations done by Microsoft are machine translations and not vetted by humans fluent in both languages. You would think that at least for the documentation for their programs humans would be involved in the process.

    I'm glad to hear you found hte correct settings.
