Say I have a USB storage device that's only supposed to contain data files. Is there a way to browse the contents of that device, but with any dangerous file types (such as EXE etc) hidden as if deleted?
Say there's a folder full of images, but an EXE mingling amoung them with an icon that looks just like a preview image. I want the file system, when it return the list of files to the OS, to just not include that file. Or if not the file system, some component that just hides files from view with Windows Explorer. (Built into the OS or as an add-on component.)
I'm using Windows Vista, but I hope people will offer answers for other OSs too. (I'm just casually interested in how Linux, Mac etc deals with executables on USB devices.)
I would define "dangerous" as any file type that could run unrestricted code when clicked. EXE, VBS, COM, BAT, etc.
