Hi,

when i navigate to videos using the video menu i see the useless (i know its no really useless) folder 'lost+found'. i can remember that i could hide this folder by adding some code in advancedsettings.xml, but it doesn't work. i'm on ubuntu and i created the xml file in ~/.kodi/userdata:

<advancedsettings>
<video>
  <excludefromlisting>
    <regexp>[-\._ ](lost|found)[-\._ ]</regexp>
    <regexp>lost+found</regexp>
  <excludefromlisting>
</video>
</advancedsettings>

i tried the 2 examples above (not at the same time off course). both didn't work.

Is it a local drive or a SMB share which shows that folder?

If it's a SMB share, see: https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1804322
A local drive.
Have you tried it with a single regex of "lost" just to see if that matches?  I'm not sure how this parameter works, but not convinced the first expression is correct.
