Archiving a folder in Windows 10

Postby c327 » Sun Dec 24, 2017 10:21 am

In Windows 10 Pro I created a folder. On the property page for this folder I checked the box to archive all folders and sub folders and OK my way out when I go back and check the property page it showed the folder as hidden. Why won't it stay archived?

If you ever want to access your archived folders, simply double-click on the folder. Windows will open it for full view, but you will have to repeat the archival steps again once you have opened it.

Makes sense then.
