    Hello,

    I would like to see all file types in the ArcCatalog, not only GIS. Why do I need such a functionality -  ArcCatalog allows to delete folder in the file system. While in ArcCatalog it looks empty, there might be additional files left, that are not reckognized by ArcCatalog like PDF's, ZIP's, Word documents, that are associated with GIS data stored in the folder. 
    While it is possible to define additional file types by customizing ArcCatalog options, this approach requires knowing all possible file types in advance.

    Best Regards,
    Vytautas
