I did something I didn't want to, based on this page . . . Windows command-line command to list hidden folders
I was trying to figure out if there were any errors in what my bat file was doing.
To get the output, I thought I should go to the "Startup" folder in cmd.exe, which is hidden, and run: Startup.bat > testlog.txt 2> testerrors.txt
To get there, I would have to un-hide some folders.
I found the above page, and ran the attrib command with those switches.
I think I did this in the C:\ProgramData folder (normally hidden)
I think that I put this in an elevated command prompt, based on the second answer . . . attrib -s -h -r /s /d . and hit Enter.
Maybe I just put this in . . . attrib -s -h -r /s /d
I thought, I'll just go fast and not think, nothing can happen . . . then, of course, I read on that same page, also, that this can alter your folder attributes . . . they should preface that with the word "CAUTION."
I think I did see a lot of "NOT ACCESSIBLE . . . " flashing by . . . it was doing something.
Is there any way to tell if I altered my folder attributes or not?
Does this fix I have at the bottom fix it, or not?
Quick way to reset all security permissions to default? (Windows 7)
"Just run in a elevated prompt the following command."
secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\inf\defltbase.inf /db defltbase.sdb /verbose
This did something, but, how can I tell if it did what I want, and things are back to normal? I don't know if secedit applies to folder attributes or not.
Is there a folder Attribute auditing program?
