Option to ignore system folders such as $Recycle.Bin or System Volume Information in windows

I have started incorporating the Obsidian to my filesystem and every note is kept at different location throughout the drive and synchronising across platforms. Selecting the default drive location as the vault location comes with indexing the hidden system folders which the app has no right to access in terms of reading or writing, an option to opt these out would be nice.

My workaround is that, starting the Obsidian as administrator and deleting the $Recycle.Bin and System Volume Information on my drive which the windows do not like.
