is there a way to add comments to a folder in windows server 2008, maybe also through powershell? In my company we have a shared server and I would like to give other users information about the meaning of some folders.

Thank you

Windows shares can have comments specified when you create the share, however individual folders cannot. An easier solution might just be a read-me folder in each folder that requires a description.
