Quick Tip: Exclude Files and Folders from Source Control

I recently had the problem that a directory called "Cache" was always adding new files automatically
and adding them like crazy to our source control system. It was really annoying because we do not
need those cache files in source control and every developer had his own cache files, which always
had to be replaced. The simple solution is to make the folder hidden, this way it does not show up
in visual studio (except you show hidden files) and this way it does not get added to the source
control system.

Works with SourceSafe, Vault, Perforce and SubVersion.
