Hi,

Read Only - The file cannot be changed, if you edit the file you will not be able to save it.

Hidden -  File will not be listed through a command prompt listing or Windows Explorer if the option "Do not show hidden files and folders" is selected in Tools > Folder Options

Archive - This is used mostly by backup programs, once a file changes the archive attribute is set and the backup software will know to backup it up.

Hi,

I am assuming you're seing these options looking at a file or folder properties, is this correct?

If you're familiar with the "... for Dummies" books, then check out http://etips.dummies.com/signup.asp for daily tips and tricks delivered to your email.
