Hide a local file from user in FmGo?

I have a local file solution deployed via FmGo that consists of a UI file and a Data file.

 

I don't need the users opening the Data file directly, so I would like to hide it in the Launch Center. Does anyone know of a way to do this? Or simply ideas for handling this kind of situation where you want the users opening the UI file only? Here's only thing I could think of...

 

1. Contain the data file in a container within the UI file and export it for use when the UI file opens. Then insert back into the container and delete file upon exit. Of course, if user doesn't exit in a way that uses your cleanup script, then the file would remain on the device.

2. Could perform some kind of check on startup of the data file that would not allow access if the UI file was not open?

 

This isn't the end of the world but I would like things to look clean for the users and not have to continually answer the question of, "Hey, what's this other file for?"
