I've noticed that Google Drive for Windows changes file attributes on files that I place into it. It makes them hidden and system. How to prevent Google Drive from touching file attributes?

P.S. I don't use Windows Explorer for managing files (good old two panel file managers rule) and having hidden\system files display on is a mess.

    I'm not sure why you are seeing this. I just checked my google drive folder and none of them are hidden or system files. I suspect that this may be inherited for some reason from a folder higher up. – EBGreen Dec 20 '12 at 15:44

  • Yes. So the file browser that you are using is a potential culprit as well. – EBGreen Dec 20 '12 at 15:54
  • Dumb question: have you checked file properties for files in Google Drive folder? – artvolk Dec 20 '12 at 16:04
  • "I just checked my google drive folder and none of them are hidden or system files" that meant the properties on the files. – EBGreen Dec 20 '12 at 16:15
