I move and/or copy recordings from the live recordings folder to a couple of archive folders on drive D: for viewing later. I wrote my own (external to WMC) archiving app. When viewing the WMC recordings screen, all wtv files on the entire hard drive (D:) are displayed. The live recording folder is also pointing at the D: drive. This action started happening recently when I must have changed something in explorer search or maybe a user defined library (now deleted). I now have to change the extension when archiving in order to prevent listing in WMC.

Is there a way to make WMC not display normally named files which are not in the live recordings folder? I would have no problem hacking the registry if a solution requires it.
