Thanks for your reply.
Hi Bare Foot Kid
Thanks for your reply also.
We have a tutorial that's very easily understood on the subject of folder privacy, (how to hide a folder) have a look at it at the link below; be sure to keep us informed. File and Folder - Hide or Unhide
As you can see, I haven't figured out the "Multi-Quote" function yet.
I am aware that you can copy, move, rename and/or delete "Read-Only" files.
In XP, when you try to move and/or delete a "Read-Only" file, the dialog box specifically mentions that fact. As a result, if I want to make sure that I didn't accidentally delete/move a file (that might be important in the future), I mark it "Read-Only". The "Read-Only" files are mixed with files that I don't necessarily want to keep.
Windows 7 only gives the generic "Are you sure..." dialog box.
On my PC, WMP 12 ignores the "Read-Only" attribute on its database file, "wmpfolders.wmdb". That is to say, if you modify it and set it to "Read-Only" and then run WMP 12, the next time you check "wmpfolders.wmdb" it has changed!
In fact last year when I first tried using WMP 12 (windows 7 build 7048) it helpfully renamed 900/3600 mp3s, despite the fact that they were all set to "Read-Only".
As a result, I use Winamp to play mp3s on my PC.
The only reason I started WMP 12 was to see if a weird glitch on my PC was being caused by Winamp (the glitch still occurred). The glitch is, that a process (system) on my PC, suddenly surges to 40%-50% CPU usage, which causes the music to stutter for about 1 second.
I have tried to isolate what is happening by running "Process Monitor", but I haven't been able to find the cause yet.
I will check out the links that you both provided. Thanks.
I am aware of the info provided by those links.
I've never had any luck using "cacls" though (I always use the "Security" tab).
I am not worried about Album Art because I don't use it anyway.
