Can files on a PakBus data logger be hidden?

The FileManage() instruction can be used to hide files on a data logger. The following are some important reminders:

  • Hidden files will not be displayed and therefore are not accessible via File Control, FTP, HTTP, etc.
  • Hidden CR and DLD program files and those specified by the Include instruction can be used by the data logger.
  • Hidden files can be accessed under program control using the FileOpen(), FileRead(), and FileWrite() instructions.
  • Hidden files can be further protected by encrypting them with the CRBasic Editor or the FileEncrypt() instruction.
