I have a program I am making that will mirror local document files to a backup server. It also maps a network drive to backup the files too. When it does this, I would like to set the attributes of the _Backup folder to hidden. I did SetAttr("X:\_Backup", FileAttribute.Hidden) and when i right click on the _Backup folder and go to properties it tells me that the Hidden attribute is grayed out. Any suggestions to this would be very helpful. Thanks
