Why are we not allowed to getFolderAsync a hidden directory? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Getting this when displaying the folder picker and search for a hidden directory under the folder the user has given me permission to open:

    0x80070005 - JavaScript runtime error: Access is denied.

    WinRT information: Cannot access the specified file or folder (酰ぽ¯). Verify that the item is not marked with system or hidden file attributes.

    Note the gibberisch Unicode chars in the error message VS displays!

    What is the recommended way to query hidden folders/files?
