How to reset archive attributes on multiple folders. Small Business Server 2003
Posted on 2009-02-11
I have a Small Business Server where all the files I copied over from the old server, SBS 2000, to an external drive and then to the new server have the archive attribute set.
Any user that wants to modify a file cannot until a reset the archive attribute. There is no windows GUI method to reset this and windows will only allow me to change the attribute one folder at a time. I have 40+ users with many sub folders so to do this manually from the command line with take an extreme amount of patience and time.
I know attrib utilities exist I just need to find one and one that will do sub folders and files all at once.
