Sometimes, Attribute Changer fails to update a file or folder if there is no obvious reason.
In Windows, many applications and processes are opened simultaneously and they may have access to files or folders. These files could therefore already be open in these applications.
What does this mean ?
If you selected the option to change date, time or the compression state of a folder or file, then Attribute Changer needs to acquire a Read/Write handle to this object. Updates to attributes, photo EXIF data and a case change do not require this kind of access handle.
If you mix the modifications, lets say attributes and date, then Attribute Changer will fail the object if it can’t acquire a handle. It will not apply the attributes and fail on the date modification.
Attribute Changer protects the file and folder against partial updates. This is by design
Attribute Changer is fully integrated with the UAC and correctly handles the actions. Users should save their data in their private locations, not in system protected areas.
