All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.
I have a mp3 file which is flagged as a ‘System File’ according to Windows 7.
Is there a way to change this file back to a ‘Normal’ file?
How to solve :
I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.
“System files” in Windows 7 are files tagged with the following two attributes:
“Hidden system files” in Windows 7 are files tagged with the following three attributes:
To reset “System files”, simply run the following command:
attrib -A -S file.ext
To reset “Hidden System files”, run the following:
attrib -A -H -S file.ext
Try running “attrib -S filename” from a command prompt.
If it’s flagged as a system file, it might also be flagged as a hidden file, so open command prompt, then
cd C:\path\to\folder and then
attrib -h -s song.mp3. The minus sign means removing an attribute, ‘h’ stands for hidden, ‘s’ stands for system. For adding an attribute, change -h to +h.
To change all files in the folder put * instead of file name – this can save a lot of time.
attrib -A -H -S *
Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
