The basics: your computer stores information in files, files are organized into folders and subfolders, making filesystem structure. When we are speaking about more than one file, information is stored not only inside files, but also filenames and folders organization ARE information. And sometimes, even more important information is stored in file attributes: For example, file creation and change dates are useful for time-related organization, and attributes like «readonly» or «hidden» or «system» even change file appearance and behavior.
That's why Attribute Manager matters. Attribute Manager is a software for fast changes in those «auxiliary» files information; unlike Windows own attributes editing abilities, Attribute Manager allows to change multiple file attributes at once. The main program window is just like usual Windows Explorer, and you can select any number of files and folders and press «change file attributes» (or «change folder attributes»). In attributes editing window you can select all created, changed and accessed dates and «archived», «hidden», «readonly», «system» flags. Date fields can also be changed partially (for example, year only, preserving month and date). Finally, you can save your «what to change» settings as a template for further usage.
