Making files visible on OneDrive Personal



This might be more of a Windows 10 question than a CloudDrive question, but here goes: 

I'm using Microsoft OneDrive Personal to host an 800GB StableBit CloudDrive, and CloudDrive very conveniently drops in a text file that says, essentially, "you won't be able to see any of the thousands of files stored here because they're invisible and have really long hexadecimal filenames." That's fine, but how *do* I see them if I want to? 

My goal is to tell OneDrive *not* to automatically sync all the hidden CloudDrive files. But to do that, I have to know where they are and what they're called.

Never mind. 😉 To accomplish my particular task, I don't actually need to make the files visible in Windows File Explorer, I just need to tweak OneDrive's settings to de-select the "OneDrive\Apps\StableBit Cloud Drive" folder. Now OneDrive will stop syncing it to each and every PC with OneDrive installed. 

To free up the space it's already wasted, I then select the same folder in Windows File Explorer, right-click it, and choose "free up space."
