[SOLVED] Checking archive attribute on file with DOS

Q: [SOLVED] Checking archive attribute on file with DOS

Is it possible to check the archive attribute on a file with DOS?
I have a series of directories that need to have their files deleted once the archive attribute has been removed i.e. in Windows Explorer under the Attribute column the 'A' has disappeared.

How would one go about checking. I can gather a list of the file names in the directory. I assume that it would be the command

If not exist [archive attribute] (
delete file)
However I may be barking up the wrong tree.
Has anyone any experience with this?

Preferred Solution: [SOLVED] Checking archive attribute on file with DOS

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: [SOLVED] Checking archive attribute on file with DOS

Hi Tigers!. . .

Welcome back to the Tech Support Forum!

I like that name "directories" - Good Stuff!

I may be missing something here, but why do you first ned to remove the -A attribute prior to deletion? Or are you trying to delete all files without the -A? If so ... what about -S, -H, etc...?

Regards. . .

Several months ago I got a new laptop with Win 7 Pro SP1 64bit. I have done numerous backups on this machine but I've noticed that the file attribute 'archive bit' (a) is not being reset as it was on Win XP. (NOTE: backups were full backups not incremental or differential.)

Does Win 7 treat file attribute bits differently than XP?

I also have noticed that 7 displays various attribute bits that were not used in XP; where is there a description of all attribute bits?

A:File Attribute 'Archive' Bits not being reset

Are you on a homegroup by any chance?

I've read some MS answers that flat out say that the archive bit is no longer available in windows 7 (but I think they mean reliably usable rather than not available in the strict sense). To others saying that the homegroup networking is using it for it's own purposes (probably for it's own built in backup) and it interferes with other people/programs using it.

Personally I have not looked into it though.

I believe that the base "dos" attributes are the same as always though: Read Only, Archive, Hidden and System. Of course NTFS itself has (and has always had) a much more extensive access control system in place for all folders and files...

I'm having a problem with the archive attribute on my Windows XP system. It's not getting updated after running a backup application. I've tried both Cobian and Acronis. Immediately after creating a full backup, the archive attribute is left unchanged. This means incremental backups don't work. I've tried manually clearing the attribute, but the problem just reoccurs immediately after running a backup.

I just got my first Vista laptop, and am trying to figure out how to search for files with the Archive Attribute set. In XP, this was easy. I've loaded my apps, and want to clear all my archive bits before transferring all my data to minimize future incremental backups. I haven't been able to find anything on the web for this. Ideas?


A:How do I search for files with the Archive Attribute Set?

Type "cmd" in the search box (start menu). In the window that opens type (no quotes) "dir /s /a:a" and press enter. This will search and display any files that have the "a" attribute set in the current and sub directories. For example, if the root directory is "C:" the the command will show you all files on the C: partition that have the archive attribute set. If you are looking for a specific file then modify the command like this: "dir fred* /s /a:a" (substitute "fred" for whatever filename you want to search for).

You can also save the results to a text file by adding a redirect to the command like this: "dir fred* /s /a:a >attrib.txt" This will create a file called "attrib.txt" in the root directory of your drive (you will not see any output to the screen when doing this).

I have a LinkStation 250GB network drive. When I use XCOPY to copy files from the drive, the files' archive attribute is not reset. This is not a problem when I use XCOPY to copy files from my PC's C: drive; in other words, the archive attribute IS reset.

A:XOPY doesn't reset archive attribute on NAS drive

I have gotten around the issue by replacing the /M option with the /D option, without using a date value for the /D option. This appears to do what I want, namely, only copy new and modified files.

Nonetheless, I still wonder why the /M option doesn't work.

With any file management tool I've ever used that attempts to show the date/time of the last file access, all I ever see is the time I used the tool to view the last access time stamp. In other words, checking the last access time counts as an access. Duh! What good is that?

Is there any tool or trick to allow you to determine the last access date/time OTHER THAN the time you access the file to ask the question?

This is particularly noticeable with audio and image files - but I often have identical file names in different formats or sizes.

Hi catstevecam and welcome to Seven Forums.

Yes you can display the file extension. In explorer select Organize->Folder and search options. On the view tab uncheck Hide extensions for known file types.
If you right click on an empty area in a folder you can chose sort and grouping options. Type is one of these.

You can change the attributes of some file types (Music & Videos) in the properties details tab.

Hello to all and Happy New Year,

I have very strange problem, I have found virus on my USB stick which my Mcafee antivirus succesfully cleaned. However, there were a few files infected, which after they'd been cleaned, became hidden. I'm unbale to change that attribute in file's properties since it is gray. I don't know what to do. I have checked and I as an administartor of machine have rights to read and write atributes.
Is there any other way to change this "hidden" attribute?
I'm using Win XP professional.

A:Unable to change file's attribute

I managed to fix this. I found that antivirus somehow set attribute to these files as system files. I noticed that when I tried to remove hidden attribute by attrib command manually in cmd prompt.
So, command
attrib -s -h file_name.doc solve problem.
Only problem is I needed to repeat command 10 times, one for each file. I wonder if only I could do it for all automatically...

My families vista system got infected with malware(Antimalware doctor) and (as the computer had already been restarted twice by this point anyway) I elected to attempt to remove the offending files from safe mode. I deleted the registry keys first with relative success but had more trouble hunting down the offending files. In the end I found the filepath in a shortcut but found that the folders in question were hidden. After making the hidden files visible folder by folder for I while I decided to accelerate the process and told it to make all hidden files visible. As this was the case with my own computer, I didn't anticipate any problems but after a 3 min long "attribute change" suddenly all the files in the relevant users account had disappeared, rather than being joined by a few previously hidden folders.(In fact, aside from a previously open window, the account as a whole had disappeared). According to the windows accounts page, the account in question is still there and using a sizable chunk of hard disk space, but I can find no other evidence of it or the files.

My only two theories right now are :
1. Somehow I accidentally made all of the contents of the account be listed as hidden files - I consider this one very unlikely, as one vista dialogue(which I have used many times before) would probably not be capable of that effect.

2. Some self-defense action of the malware. The malware has already prevented use of the internet or the running of any progra... Read more

When i create a new folder it automatically sets the read only attribute, if i try and turn it off it just turns back on again.

I have tried using command prompt to disable it as well as playing with the security settings and account permissions.

does any one have any ideas?

A:File and Folder Read only attribute wont disable

1. First question, why are you trying to do it?

2. look here:
Unable to remove Read-Only attribute from folder
You cannot view or change the Read-only or the System attributes of folders in Windows Server 2003, in Windows XP, in Windows Vista or in Windows 7

To view or to remove the Read-only or the System attributes of folders in Windows Vista or Windows 7
Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then press ENTER..
To view the syntax for the Attrib command, type attrib /? at the command prompt.
To remove the Read-only attribute and to set the System attribute, use the following command:
attrib -r +s drive:\<path>\<foldername>
For example, to remove the Read-only attribute and to set the System attribute for the C:\Test folder, use the following command:
attrib -r +s c:\test
Be aware that some programs may not operate correctly with folders for which the System attribute and the Read-only attribute are set. Therefore, use the following command to remove these attributes:
attrib -r -s drive:\<path>\<foldername>
For example, to remove both the Read-only and the System attributes from the C:\Test folder, use the following command:
attrib -r -s c:\test
If the Run command is not listed on the Start menu, do the following:
Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, and then click Run..

note: Open cmd with run as administrator

Hello friends,

Recently i downloaded one operating system. It had been separated into 38 .rar files. i downloaded everything.
The extraction process must go like this rite...
after completing the extraction of first .rar i.e(part 01.rar) file it should ask for the consecutive file i.e(part 02.rar) for further extraction and the extraction will proceed file by file till the last file (part38.rar).

i am using Winrar archiver cracked version.

I started the extraction with the first file,after completion it asked for the part02.rar file i gave the path of the file and the extraction process started. But after completion the part02.rar file it didnt ask for the third file (part03.rar) to extract.
Thought i must ve done some mistake while extraction. so again i started the extraction of the first file(part01.rar) but this time it didnt ask for the part02.rar file. totally pissed up. then i tried extraction with nearly six to seven files but it didnt ask for the precedded or followed by files.

What could be the probelm? what is the solution for this?

Shall i extract all the rar files? And is there any way to combine all the extracted file to get the flawless disc image.

These files deals with the disc image of an operating system.

When prompted for auto archiving, each time I saved the archive as a different file name, now when I go to some older personal folders, there are no messages in the folders. I'm assuming this is because I've got so many different archive folders, it does not know where to pull from?

If I go to a place where I think there are supposed to be system files that are supposed to be hidden (like windows/system32) and show the 'attributes' column, they say 'A' (archive) is the only attribute.

Shouldn't they say 'S' (system) and 'H' (hidden)? If so, is there a way to put the 'system' and 'hidden' attributes back on the appropriate files (without doing it manually one by one because that would take forever and I wouldn't know which ones to do)?
