Attributes ?? What is your query? Will you please elaborate it? You cannot change the read-only and system attributes of a folder.

Solving Technical queries is my passion and I just Love it !!

Beside the A and R attributes, which I know about, there are H and D. I have also heard about the J attribute. I cannot find explanations for these anywhere.

This all part of a wider issue where, in transferring files from my XP system, three duplicate folders of my transferred files have been created. But that is a separate matter.

H - Hidden
D - Directory
I - Not content indexed

You may have been mistaking J for I.
