Look at FileGetAttrib()

String returned could contain a combination of these letters "RASHNDOCT":

"R" = READONLY

"A" = ARCHIVE

"S" = SYSTEM

"H" = HIDDEN

"N" = NORMAL

"D" = DIRECTORY

"O" = OFFLINE

"C" = COMPRESSED (NTFS compression, not ZIP compression)

"T" = TEMPORARY

meaning that if you would want to verify if a folder exists, you can check for this file:

if fileexists("c:\temp\NUL") then ..
