File attribute constants

Constant Value Description
FILE_ATTRIBUTE_ARCHIVE &h00000020 A file or directory that is an archive file or directory. Applications typically use this attribute to mark files for backup or removal .
FILE_ATTRIBUTE_COMPRESSED &h00000800 A file or directory that is compressed. For a file, all of the data in the file is compressed. For a directory, compression is the default for newly created files and subdirectories.
FILE_ATTRIBUTE_DIRECTORY &h00000010 The handle that identifies a directory.
FILE_ATTRIBUTE_HIDDEN &h00000002 The file or directory is hidden. It is not included in an ordinary directory listing.
FILE_ATTRIBUTE_NORMAL &h00000080 A file that does not have other attributes set. This attribute is valid only when used alone.
FILE_ATTRIBUTE_OFFLINE &h00001000 The data of a file is not available immediately. This attribute indicates that the file data is physically moved to offline storage. This attribute is used by Remote Storage, which is the hierarchical storage management software. Applications should not arbitrarily change this attribute.
FILE_ATTRIBUTE_READONLY &h00000001 A file that is read-only. Applications can read the file, but cannot write to it or delete it.
FILE_ATTRIBUTE_SYSTEM &h00000004 A file or directory that the operating system uses a part of, or uses exclusively.
FILE_ATTRIBUTE_TEMPORARY &h00000100 A file that is being used for temporary storage. File systems avoid writing data back to mass storage if sufficient cache memory is available, because typically, an application deletes a temporary file after the handle is closed. In that scenario, the system can entirely avoid writing the data. Otherwise, the data is written after the handle is closed.
