I am using a program, FRP, to mirror user files to a remote server (both Windows 2003 R2s). Lately, I noticed that many of the folders on the destination server have hidden and read-only attributes (HS is shown in Windows explorer.
Resetting the attributes using attrib command works for a while and comes back to the hidden and read-only.
An interesting detail is that not every folder is having the problem. I can have a hidden folder with 25 hidden and 5 regular folders inside of it.
Needless to say that the folders are 'normal' on the original server.
Google seach point to a few programs that claim to be able to correct it. I wouldn't mind buying an inexpensive program but need to know if it reallly works.
The hosting company support cannot help, it does the same for them.
Any ideas on the cause of the problem and possible solutions would be appreciated
