CHANGING FILE ATTRIBUTES

Warning: Do not use this unless you fully understand attributes and have a reason to change one.

To change an attribute, place the pointer next to the file to be changed and press A (Change Attribute). The following screen will appear:


             Hidden System Read-Only Archive
             S to Set
             R to Reset          |HSRA|
             Space to Ignore     |_   |

The letters in the brackets |HSRA| stand for: H=Hidden, S=System, R=Read Only, and A=Archive

You will type one of the codes shown on the screen below each of the letters |HSRA|. They mean:

S to Set - An S sets that attribute to "on" for the file indicated by the pointer.

R to Reset - R sets that attribute to "off" for the indicated file.

Space to Ignore - A space leaves the attribute as it is:


Example:
|S |

This would set the hidden attribute for this file. All other attributes would remain as they were. If you want to change the attributes of a number of files at one time, mark (highlight) the desired files, then press Alt A (Change Attributes for Marked Files). Set the attributes as described above. The attributes you choose will be set for all marked files.
