Hi,

For creation datetime of a folder:

function GetFileCreated(const filename: string): TDateTime;
var sr:TSearchRec;
  SysTimeStruct: SYSTEMTIME;
  lft:_FILETIME;
begin
  Result:=0; // if the file won't be found
  if FindFirst(FileName,faAnyFile,sr) = 0 then
  begin
    if FileTimeToLocalFileTime(sr.FindData.ftCreationTime, lft) and
      FileTimeToSystemTime(lft, SysTimeStruct) then begin
      result := SystemTimeToDateTime(SysTimeStruct);
    end;
  end;
  FindClose(sr);
end;

procedure TForm1.Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  ShowMessage(FormatDateTime('dd.mm.yyyy hh:nn:ss', GetFileCreated('c:\temp')));
end;

For attributes:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  if (GetFileAttributes(PChar(Edit1.Text)) and faReadOnly) > 0 then ShowMessage('ReadOnly');;
end;

Look TSearchRec description in Delphi help for other attribute constants like faHidden, etc..
