[Resolved] BRC never works in Read Only Files

Postby prolinkerx » Sun Aug 11, 2019 4:54 am

Could you please help.

Though BRC has the option /Clearr, which "clear the Read-only attribute", "take place after any renaming operation"

But the renaming operation (in any read-only file) never works in the first place.
If the folder/pattern-match contains only read-only files, no file is processed.
If the folder/pattern-match contains read-only files and few normal files, only the later are process, so the file is mix-up.

So anytime I perform BRC, though there is any read-only file or not, I always need to clear read-only manually (or using CMD) first to make sure BRC works correctly.

The Read-only attribute means locking file contents on editing, don't know why BRC treats it as locking filename change.

That problem happened to me since many year ago, in every time I use BRC, even run CMD in Admin doesn't help.

Could you please help?

UPDATE

Finally, it was documented, /inclr option is needed. Don't know why I never read it in BRC Manual. Thank you for your reading time.

Code: Select all
/INCLR - Include read-only files/folders. [b]By default, these are excluded.[/b]

Re: BRC never works in Read Only Files -> mix-up the results

I've searched more and see "Truth" said

truth wrote:...
The only exception is that read-only/hidden/system-files are auto-filtered before /pattern starts filtering


Actually, the read-only files are auto-filtered out of renaming process, whether /pattern is used or not.

Is there any way to fix it? :(
