Description Virgile Bello 2012-04-18 06:56:43 UTC
Issue has been described here:

Basically, on Windows, if a file has any special flag (read-only, hidden, or archive), it won't be in the Directory.EnumerateFiles().
It happens because files with special flags won't have FileAttributes.Normal (as mono expects it) but only the special flags.

Didn't test it yet, but a fix such as this should fix it:
