... there are thousands of files!

... just tried this in xp, should work in Vista in command prompt type:

attrib C:\*.* /S>C:\1.txt [press enter]

... which should list ALL your files in C: drive including path of subfolders into a text file called 1.txt in C: drive showing the attributes by letter prior.

Thanks for the info. My fault I did not specify where I would like to see this information. Is there a way to request window explorer displays the file attributes column in every folder without having to request this for each and every individual folder?
I am trying different backup software and wish to check which files have the archive attribute set to confirm the correct files are being backed up ok.
Is there no global setting to set this for all folders displayed by explorer without going into the registry to achieve this?
