Editors' Review

by   / May 20, 2009

Changing file attributes in one fell swoop is extremely easy, thanks to this well-designed and capable program. Despite a short trial period and file limit, we were still able to fully experience its superb performance.

File Property Edit has a very clean and easy-to-navigate interface that will appeal to all user levels. It flows in such a way that you know exactly where to go first. We added an entire folder and opted to include paths and subdirectories. The program also provides a filter feature. The contents of our folder immediately appeared in the interface window. From there, we had the options of modifying the file time and setting file attributes, such as archive, read only, hidden, and offline, to name a few. As soon as we clicked the Apply Changes button, the program instantly modified the file attributes. We were able to just as easily change the file attributes back to normal using the same steps, as well as by clicking the Undo Changes button. We were reminded of the program's 50-file trial limitation, but other than that the process worked exactly as it would with the registered version.

We would have liked to have seen a built-in Help feature, but there is a link to the publisher's Web site for help. We also would have liked to have a longer trial period than the given 15 days. Still, if you're looking for a no-nonsense file manager, this program is a worthy contender.
