I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to issue the unset readonly property for a folder, all subfolders and files via DOS? I have a BAT file we use for various command line executions across several tools and every no and then I hit READONLY files. It's a pain to have to do it through Windows, so I'd like to just set it in my BAT file.
