Make Directory Not Read Only

Recommended Posts


can any one help me it's simple if you know how,

but how do you make a directory not read only? I have looked at FileSetAttrib but this does not do the directory itself.

I'am trying to update some files in a directory (folder), but the scripe would'nt copy the files, after investgating I discovered that the directory (folder) is read only, but the files in the directory are not, if I un read them the files copy fine as ideals. :whistle:

you could just run the dos ATTRIB -R c:\yourdir command ...

EDIT: just tested the FileSetAttr and it works fine on directories too.

this case the directory is "c:\temp\test"

FileSetAttrib ( "c:\temp\test.", "-R" )
