Why do ignored files still appear as 'unversioned files'?

Answered

I just added a data/ directory in my .ignored file, but in VCS, they still appear as "un-versioned files".  I don't want to add all these individual files in .ignored files.   

I have another data directory in .ignored file, and all these files under it don't appear  in .ignored file, which is what I like.

Why is that?

What is a .ingored file? What VCS do you use?

If you mean git, check if git status in the command line shows the mentioned files as untracked. It could happen something is wrong with the ignore syntax

Does "unversioned files" mean exactly as "untracked files"? Thanks.

Yes, unversioned is the same as untracked. Untracked is just a git-specific term.
