      Set objFolder = fs.GetFolder(sFolderName)
      Set objSubFolders = objFolder.SubFolders
      Set objFiles = objFolder.Files


      'count files
      iTotFiles=iTotFiles + objFiles.count
      'set to remove readonly
      Const READONLY = 1
      For Each xFile In objFiles
            xFile.Attributes = File.Attributes And Not READONLY
      Next

      For Each xFolder In objSubFolders
         xFolder.Attributes = xFolder.Attributes And Not READONLY
          ScanFolder (xFolder.Path)
      Next

      'count directories found
      itotdirs=itotdirs+1
