Kobo: Adding pdfs without them getting scanned by Nickel

So, hello Mobileread peeps. Been lurking around here, googling for solutions for various issues and questions I had. Very useful site.
Now, this is a small thing that has been irking me, and I tried to search for it, and couldn't find anything. If this has been answered, then I'm sorry and would be grateful for a link.

I keep adding pdfs to my eReader, which I read exclusively with koreader (the inbuilt pdf reader is ... not very good). However, they keep cluttering the Nickel list of books on the device, as it scans everything I add over USB.
So is there someway of putting stuff from my PC to my Kobo, such that I can read them in koreader, but Nickel doesn't "see" them. Some directory, perhaps that isn't scanned? I thought about changing file endings, but I don't know if that would also mess with koreader.

Just put them in a folder/directory that has a name that starts with a period/dot, such as .PDFs or .Library. You can make such a folder, in Windows by Naming it with a period before and after the name like: .Books. , the dot after the name will disappear leaving you with .Books, the files and subfolders you put into that folder will not be processed by Kobo. KOReader and coolreader can be set to read such "hidden" files.

Luck;
Ken

Thanks, Ken. That did exactly what I wanted.

A good tip, Ken, thank you. I will try it for Kindle PW3 where I have a similar problem.
