I am using Microsoft's SyncToy in Windows 7 to do backups between several locations, including my desktop. Unfortunately, SyncToy stores metadata in hidden .dat files that it leaves wherever it backs up to or from. I hate seeing this file on my desktop, but I don't want to hide hidden files. I am wondering if I could move it offscreen so I don't have to see it most of the time. I know this happens unintentionally occasionally, but I've never tried to do it intentionally. I am already at the maximum screen resolution so any solution that involves changing that probably won't work.
Click on the desktop with the secondary mouse button to open the context menu, select
