Preferred Solution: Windows FTP server File time attribute

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.)

I have Windows Server 2008 R2. When I upload files to the FTP site, the time of the file uploaded time is incorrect. For example if I upload a file modified 10:37:10 PM it becomes 5:37:00 PM on the FTP site. It is always 5 hour earlier??

I have installed FileZilla server 0.9.41 on Windows Server 2008 R2. When I upload files to the FTP site, the time
of the file uploaded is incorrect. For example if I upload a file modified 10:37:10 PM it becomes 5:37:00 PM on the FTP site. It is always 5 hours earlier, and truncates the seconds. This makes version control of files difficult. Is there some configuration
change that can fix this, or is this a Windows Server issue? The server time is configured for the Central time zone in The United States.

I have 6 computers in a workgroup that need to be synchronized to a workgroup server.  The server is a virtual Win 7 running on a Windows 10 host.  Neither the server or client computers have internet access.  I started the process by configuring
the host to use its CMOS clock as its time source, which seems to have worked. The client computers are not virtual and can communicate with the Win 10 host as I am able to RDP to the host from the clients.  I made the following registry key changes to
get that accomplished.

In Windows 7 (and Vista) - all files displayed show only the file name.
This is particularly noticeable with audio and image files - but I often have identical file names in different formats or sizes.
Is there a way to make the .wav or .mp3 etc suffix visible and more importantly - can I edit it and sort by type?

(At the moment I am reverting to an old laptop running XP where I can edit and sort things easily).

Many thanks,

A:File Manager - file attribute display and changing

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.

I was trying to sync Windows time with Internet timer Server. I was following this tutorial : Time Synchronization - Turn On or Off in Windows 8

For the first option, I couldn't couldn't find the necessary options.

For the second option, I've already set my settings right.
But, still my windows 8 time was showing wrong.

I had to change my BIOS time to make the necessary change to Windows time.

So, what happened here. Can windows 8 override BIOS time? or How can I set Windows time to Internet time server even if my BIOS time is wrong.

Thank you for your help.

A:Synchronize windows time with internet time server.

Yes the OS can override the BIOS time. It uses UTC to update. Check your time zone in Date & Time tab, to see if that is why your time is off.

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

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...

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?

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..

I have a problem to access file server on Windows Server 2000 from a Windows 7 PC. For your information, due to some reasons, both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2000 are in different domain.

I have tried all suggested solutions which are :
i. to unchecked both attributes in 'Network Security : Minimum session security for NTLM SSP based (including secure RPC)' for both clients and server.
ii. to apply 'Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated' in 'Network Security : LAN Manager authentication level'
iii. to make sure the time setting for both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2000 are the same.

But still, i couldn't access the file server. In fact, each time I entered domain\username to authenticate, it will give out this message :

Since I am kinda new to this troubleshooting things, it would be great if someone can tell me why does this happening. Is it because of the different domain?

thanks in advance.

A:Windows 7 unable to Access file server on Windows Server 2000

To connect to the server you would need to enter the credentials of the domain user on the server that would have access. For example if the domain was 'home' with a user 'Josh' then I would put:


As the username. If you want to get advanced you could try and form a trust with the other domain in active directory so that the other domain has permission to access the server

Hi, I am hoping that someone can help me resolve a problem that i have been having since day 1 with windows 7.

The problem is that my PC will occasionally freeze requiring a hard reset.

The PC itself is solely used as a HTPC with Media Center running on it 24/7. Its running Win7 64 bit. There doesn't seem to be any common tasks that it will freeze up on, although a possible slight propensity for it to happen at 100% CPU use (encoding).

Its not heat on the CPU (it has also happened when at idle), all my drivers are up to date, I thought it might be Catalyst Control Center but it froze without this too, bios was updated the other week and yet i had three freezes in a day today.

The main clue (I think) is that there is always some problem with the time when it reboots after the freeze. A lot of the time it will wake up and think that its 2000, exactly 10 years to the second has been lost from the system clock. obviously this affects the scheduling of tasks, scheduled recordings and so on. Until recently there's been very little detail in the event log, often i have seen the last 1/2 hour to 5 hours missing completely and showing the wrong date when it resumes.

The last three freezes it has (seemingly) been able to retain all the even log and i have noticed that there is a event relating to synchronising the system time shortly before the freeze. When it has rebooted on each occasion, if i go through to changing the internet time settings, it tells me that the time server ha... Read more

A:Windows 7 Freeze and Possible Time Server Problems

Have exactly the same problem but at least I think I've found out why. The culprit appears to be searchindexer.exe.
My freeze is fairly random except that it will always occur when the tv listing update runs in the early am.
My setup:
- Windows 7 home premium
- Originally an ATI 4300 video card - now it's a Nvidia 430
- Hauppage PVR
- Asus N4L motherboard with 2M memory
- Home Server for pictures, music, etc.
I've gone thru a heck of lot of testing. Here's what I did:
1. Replaced the ATI with Nvidia. I too was seeing a bunch of errors and suspected the flood crippled the system. Didn't fix anything. Nothing in any of the system or media center logs; system just froze and required a reboot.
2. Replaced the hard drive and cable. Denada.
3. Replaced the memory. Denada,
4. Replaced the hard drive. Denada.
5. Double checked and reloaded all the latest drivers. Denada
6. Killed all the services that I could reasonably kill. Denada
7. Cleaned out all of the extraneous autoruns. Denada
8. Rebuilt the entire Windows 7 media center. Turned of aero and only loaded Total Media Player. Set up Home Server. Went thru the autorun and service cleanup. Downloaded all new drivers. Turned on monitors for temperature of CPUs and GPU - all remained fine. Ran memory test for two days with no errors. Denada and still not a single event log error posted - the system just stopped.

I removed the 'file_recovery' virus and got everything else back to normal using:


which included using unhide.exe, but now I think my system files are all showing, even though I have checked 'hide system files' and 'do not show hidden files'.

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)?

I am running Windows Vista.

I?m running a Visual Studio app that fails because the folder Temporary ASP.NET Files is Read-only. In Windows Explorer, there is a checkmark next to Read-only in the folder properties. However, it does not remain unchecked if I uncheck it, even though I?m an Administrator.

If I display the Attributes column in Windows Explorer the only attribute indicated for this folder is D (for Directory).

I also tried to display the folder attributes in a Command Prompt as an Administrator using the attrib command as follows:

c:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727>attrib /d /s "Temporary ASP.NET Files"

This returns the following without indicating any attributes:


The Read-only attribute reportedly can be removed through a command prompt by using the ?R parameter. I would rather not run this command though without first confirming that the Read-only attribute is enabled.

When I upgraded to Windows 10 it, in it's infinite wisdom, changed the name of "My Documents' folder to just 'Documents' and then made the C drive read-only. Now I have to save anything to another drive. I have tried about everything I could think of and then some, but nothing works. When I try to change it, the computer goes through the motions and a nice progress bar moves along and you think it is working. However when you check again, it has reverted back to read-only.

Has anyone experienced the same problem? Does anyone know how to make the change stick? Some of my programs don't have any way to change their download folder so now they won't work.

Any help would be appreciated.

XP Pro SP2, all latest updates. When I reboot, I can correctly sync to a time server, but after an unknown amount of time it goes back to saying "The RPC server is unavailable" instantly after clicking Update Now, regardless of what server I tell it to sync to. I also noticed that if I view my nForce Networking Controller status, then click Properties and go to the Authentication tab, everything is greyed out. If I hit OK without changing anything (I can't change it even if I wanted to), a message pops up saying "An unexpected condition occured. Not all of your requested changes in settings could be made" and just goes back to that window. I have to hit cancel to close it. These two issues seem to be related since right after I reboot, the Authentication tab works normally (as well as the time sync like I mentioned above), and they both seem to stop working at the same time. I have no idea if it happens after something I run or if it's just after a certain amount of time or what. Any ideas?

I've tested various user defined data collector sets on all my Windows Server 2019 computers - physical and virtual, domain and non-domain joined, the result is always the same - the data collector sets just don't start and the following event(s) get registered
in the Diagnosis-PLA log:

Here's the codes' description -

No issues arise when starting the data collector sets manually.
Can anyone tell me if it works on your computers with Windows Server 2019?

My organization has more than 40 Windows 7 computers that I need to take care of. I'd like to configure them to get their desktop wallpaper from a remote location on a server, so that when I want to change the wallpaper, I only have to change the file on the server. Does anybody know how to do that from the registry?

i dont know if anyone has had the same issue but when transfering from my windows 8 pc to my whs the file transfers seem to stop at 99% and then fail.

any help would be great

A:windows 8 to server file transfer

Have you tried initializing the transfer from the "whs" instead of from Windows 8 to the WHS? Try that, go into the WHS and try to move it from Windows 8 to there, from within the WHS.

The only thing I can think of, is that at the very end of that transfer, it may be pulling up a Permission dialogue on the WHS which you can't see on Windows 8. Because it is possibly moving the transferred file from a Temp folder on the WHS to the folder you chose as the destination.

You may also try checking the permissions of that file, and give Administrators full permission to handle it.

We are in the process of updating our work computers and are looking at updating our file server. We currently use windows 98 (dont laugh!) soley because it allows everyone in our small office to access it as a file server. My question is how many users can access Windows 7? I looked online briefly, but couldnt find the answer. The only thing we use that computer for is a file server. We are connected to the internet and printers using another server that is accessible to the entire office. The box I am questioning about is only accessed by the 7 people in the engineering office.
Would we be better served by Windows Home Server instead?

EDIT: I looked into Home Server a little more, and it only makes sense to use it. All the functionality we need and more, for a cheaper price.

Here is the scenario:

VPN Server is set up on Windows 7 Professional machine behind DSL modem and router with port forwarding enabled. I have no trouble connecting or logging in from any client computer regardless of operating system (with the exception of clients whose outbound traffic is going through Linksys WRT54-G wireless router, but that is not my issue).

The installation of Windows 7 is fresh with no new programs installed. I have created one test folder for sharing and have enabled all sharing possibilities that I know of for one user account, which is the same user account that is logging in over the VPN. I have enabled the "Network Shares" for this user as well as the "NTFS Shares."

All client computers which have been tested for logging in through the VPN are in the same workgroup (NOT Homegroup). The workgroup shows up in the "New Network Place" Wizard of the client computer, but the folder I have manually shared is not visible. As a result, the test file I created and shared within that folder is not accessible, nor is it visible on the client.

What I would like to find out is this:


(Note to Microsoft...if you're actually listening...this used to be set up on an XP VPN and all I had to do was tell XP who I wanted to share a file with and it worked. Why did you mess this up?)

Any suggestions are appreciated and I will be glad to answer questi... Read more

I want to disable the WFP in Windows 2000 Server with SP3 or later. I have tried to follow the instruction in http://www.winguides.com/registry/display.php/790. However,
I cannot copy sfc1.dll to overwrite sfc.dll since sfc.dll is also protected by WFP.

Thank you for any help.

I have encountered a problem involving .eml files that I cannot explain.
I wonder whether anyone knows something about it.

I have a backup/restore program that scans all my files, and copies new
and updated files to a USB key. When I start working on a different computer
the program performs the reverse operation. After each file copy, the
last write time of the target file is set to that of the source file.

The program works without problems, except that for a subset of files with
the extension .eml the last write time refuses to be changed. The change of
the last write time is performed with the Win32 API function SetFileTime.
The strange part is that SetFileTime returns a "success" value; however, on
examination of the file properties it is seen that the time has not been
set properly. Stranger still, when the program is run with a debugger, the
last write time is set correctly.

I have tried all possible things; for example, I tried running the program
with administrator rights, I tried sleeping the program for a while before
changing the last write time, etc. None of these things worked. The only
thing that does work is changing the extension of the .eml files. When the
extension is changed, the program works normally.

Can anyone explain this behavior?

If the article is correct and it is a permission issue, then it works in debug mode because debug has a high privilege level.

I would make a restore point or use some other means to back up your registry before trying the solution in the article. Just in case.
