Selecting a file in the Local View or Remote View and selecting Operations -> Properties (or Properties on the shortcut menu) opens the File Properties dialog which allows you to view and change some of the file properties.
Figure : Properties page for a file
At the top of the page the file name and icon are shown. If multiple files are selected, a count of the number of files and folders is displayed.
The type of the selected file(s).
The directory where the selected file(s) are located on the remote host.
The size of the selected file. If multiple files are selected the total size of all the files is diplayed.
The date the selected file was last modified.
The Permissions check boxes are displayed for files residing in a Unix system. The nine checkboxes can be used to set the permissions of a file or a group of files. If multiple files are selected with conflicting permissions, some of the check boxes will appear grayed out. Clicking on a grayed out check box clears the selection. If any check boxes are grayed out when the OK button is pressed, the value is left unchanged on the remote file.
Permissions can also be set by entering standard octal Unix permissions (as with the Unix chmod command) in the Permission mode field. Values entered here override and update the checkbox values.
The Attributes checkboxes are displayed for files residing in a Windows system. The five checkboxes (Read-only, Hidden, Archive, System, and Compressed) can be used to set the attributes of a local file or a local group of files. If multiple files are selected with conflicting permissions, then some of the check boxes will appear grayed out. Clicking on a grayed out checkbox clears the selection. If any check boxes are grayed out when the OK button is pressed, the value is left unchanged on the remote file.
Note: Due to the limitations of the Windows architecture, it is not possible to set the Windows file attributes for remote files residing on a Windows server.
