An otherwise great app I'm using, annoys me as every time I start it, it writes to 2 files in the root of my user account which are clearly visible. Now, I have used the terminal command
sudo chflags hidden with the name of the files to hide them, which does work, but nonetheless, when I launch the app again, it makes those once hidden files visible again!
The files content stays the same, so either its being re-written, or its being made visible again once the app is finished with them after boot, and whatever way it saves, the 'hidden' status of the files is being ignored or changed due to write permissions used by the app (I'm guessing).
Is there any way to ensure that this app can find these files and do whatever writes and saves it has to, but I can still keep them invisible in Finder? As in keep the files hidden to my view but readable and writable to the app? Is a combo
chmod command needed alongside a Finder preference setting?
