File Attributes on W2K3 File Server
Posted on 2006-04-12
We have a network where the main file server was Windows 2000 Server SP4. Recently, we purchased a new server, and I have built it on Windows 2003 SP1.
I've copied over a few shared folders to this new server and changed the client mappings to reflect this. All seems to be well.
However, on the W2K3 server, if I go to one of the shared folders, there is a description called 'Attributes'. Some files have an attribute of A, some R.
Does anyone know what this means? I thought it would be read-only, read/write etc, but all files seem to have the same security permissions but diffferent attributes?
I expect it's something very simple that I'm going to look stupid asking about ;)
Thanks in advance.
