I have an application (original platform XP) in which the user can list folders and files. Checkboxes permit the user to enable or disable the display of hidden and/or system folders.

I am using a recursive function with FindFirst/Next to get folder names to build a display in a TreeView. Custom ICONS are displayed to show if a folder is normal, hidden, system or a hidden system folder. The hidden and system folders are only added to the TreeView if their respective control is checked.

I believe I need to add the same control for virtualstore folders or block them. Is there an easy way to identify them other than by name?

but reading that they done some homeworks to make live some different:

That is the correct way to get these values.
