[Fwd: Print Windows Directory - Reply to Previous Post]
--- Begin Message ---Russ:
Thanks. I know I need this tool, but I have another question along the same
I saw my director add a comment to a directory name in Windows. The comment
wasn't part of the name, but appeared out beside it. It that case it said, "Do
not mess with or delete this directory!" Now I need to know how to do the same
thing, and he can't remember how (absent-minded professor syndrome). I can
really see an application for this trick on the web server I'm working on. I
could actually document the structure! Does anyone out there know the trick?
If I knew it, not only would my job be easier and my server better organized,
but I'd impress the heck out of the techies I work with who do not know this
Thanks for any advice!
