Files on most CDs and DVDs are set to Read-Only, even when the original files that were copied to the CDs were not. This can be a real pain when copying those files back to a HD as many programs will refuse to modify a read-only file (such as Word Processors and Graphics programs).
So FileBoss will remove the read-only bit from files when they are being copied from CDs and DVDs.
While removing the read-only bit is the default setting it can be changed easily using Options > Program Options... command from the main menu and selecting the Copy Files panel. As shown in the screen fragment below:
Note: The read-only bit will only be removed when the FileBoss Copy Engine is used. When files are dropped on FileBoss or a Drop Zone and they are configured to use the normal Windows Copy engine the read-only bits will not be changed.
(Whether FileBoss' Advanced Internal Copy Engine or the normal Windows' copy engine will be used for file Dropped on FileBoss or a Drop Zone can be configured easily using the Options > Program Options... command from the main menu and selecting either the the Drag & Drop or Drop Zone panel as appropriate.
(Please note that clearing the read-only file attribute does not allow copy protected CDs or DVDs to be duplicated or copied. FileBoss does not break copy protection schemes.)
