Excluding directories from a Media Library

If you want to exclude specific directories from being displayed in the Media Library, please follow this short tutorial.
You can modify the condition, which selects the directories displayed in the Media library. In the following case all directories containing the string “.svn” are exluded. You need to alter the file ~\CMSModules\MediaLibrary\Controls\MediaLibrary\FolderTree.ascx.cs. The mentioned condition should be around the line 340 in the method BindTreeView.

if ((!dir.Contains(".svn")) && (!dir.EndsWith(hidenFolder)) && (DirectoryHelper.CheckPermissions(dir, true, false, false, false)))
