File Attributes

There are four attributes that can be assigned to files:

Read-only: You can open a read-only file and read it or print it, but you cannot change it or delete it. This protects the original file from being changed.

Archive: Some programs use this option to determine which files are to be backed up. In most cases, if the file is not read-only, it has an Archive attribute.

Hidden: Some files are not visible in file listings, and you can't use them unless you know the name of the file. Program files may be hidden to keep you from moving or deleting them accidentally.

System: Certain files are necessary to the operation of your system; these are system files. System files may be hidden to keep you from moving or deleting them accidentally.
