    Hiding folders from Windows

    My network manager would like me to hide some of the Mac folders so they are not visible in Windows.
    We use network Home folders and the users keep moving the Library folders when they are logged into Windows. I can hide the folders on the Mac but you can still see them in Windows is there a way to hide them on both?

    Making a folder a system folder and hidden (via 'attrib +s +h foldername') will make them invisible as long as you don't have 'Hide protected operating system files' disabled in Windows Explorer.
