Can I avoid a change in Folder attributes?


Recommended Posts

How can I prevent PDN from changing folder attributes?

PDN seems to change the Folder attributes, on some - but not all folders. I thought it was a quirk of Vista.

I set the attributes of the folders I use most often, and a few others.

I set the colums: Sort, Name, size, type & date. Then, I set the column width.

After using PDN, some folders - but not all, return to the default settings.

I didn't find this question. Please let me know if it is answered somewhere.

This is Candy and that is a pipe layer. I don't know who the other guy is. There was some question about the weight of this thing, after it was loaded. The permits were ordered, based on 60,000 pounds. This was the first time in the history of that machine, that they took off the counter-weights. It took a while.

Which folders are we talking about?

The folders that change seem to be random.

The view also changes from Detail to Icon.

I haven't noticed any particular pattern.

It took me a while to discover that it was PDN making the changes.

Windows Vista™ Home Premium.

Version 3.36, I think.

PDN is set to check for updates, automatically.

Sounds like a unique problem.

I just discovered that the View will flip.

If the folder is an Icon View, it will flip to detail, or list.

If the folder is Detail, it will flip to Icon.

I'm confused...

The UAC is off.

I'm not sure about the other file system setting.

The random changes don't make any sense.

If it were a setting, it seems it would affect all folders, I would think...

I've been confused, for a while.

Yesterday, I was doing nothing with the system, other than surfing.

I did no downloads, updates, nothing.

After I edited a picture, I noticed the changes, and could not see anything else, that would cause it.

Edit.

Going to dinner.

Back, after they kill my appetite...

I'll go to dinner, in a minute.

The changes are all random.

I haven't studied all the folders that change, and all that do not change.

Most of them contain a mixture of file types:

internet short cuts, text files, pdf files, various picture types, sometime exe and dll's.

I'm not sure there is much I can do to help, but I have gathered some information about your problem which may help other members help you.

That is very encouraging.

Now that they killed my appetite, yesterday was a light day.

The only thing I tried to do, was to watermark a jpg file, with layers.

I did not save anything, since I couldn't see the watermark I was trying to make.

When I clicked "Do Not Save...", the screen flashed a bit.

I'm thinking the changes occur, at that point.

Not sure, really.

Not sure about all the previous times that the attributes change.

Yesterday was easier to remember, because I wasn't really doing much.

I hope this helps.

Thank you, Simon.
