Windows File Attribute Bits Not Implemented

The subject says it all.  If you try to set an attribute bit on a file stored on the EX4, it appears to work, but when you come back to display the attribute bit, it did not get set. I think this is a very important issue, because the Archve attribute bit is often used in backup procedures.

Hi, what happens if you try to enable the attribute  before sending the file to the drive, does it show?

I assume that you mean the “archive bit”.  The NAS (EX4 and most others) don’t run a Windows file system, but a Linux one (ext4).  Also, most backup programmes don’t use this, but use the file timestamp.
