Hidden attributes on ~syncthing~*.ext.tmp files ?


A Folder on Device A (MAC OSX) syncs some files from a Folder to Device B (WIN7).

I reccognize some of the ~syncthing~*.ext.tmp files on Device B have the hidden attribute set and some have not.

Why is that?

Folder on Device B has no files with hidden attributes, if this is possible on a Mac OS Extended Journaled and Encrypted filesystem. I’ve checked with CMD+I on those files.

It depends on when the sync fails and for what reason. If it fails with permission errors, files will not be hidden for example as setting permissions happens before hiding etc.
