As I see, the program can change the attributes of files. The problem is that it does not add files with the Hidden and System attributes to the processing list.

You probably need to un-hide them in Windows Folder Options:

I add a folder in which there are files with different attributes, so this program does not load files with Hidden and System attributes for processing. This has nothing to do with what attributes the files will display in Windows Explorer.

I can confirm this behaviour. You may like to contact Kim (the developer) at kj@hulubulu.dk and file a report.

The problem only occurs if you try to import a directory - a workaround is to Add Files... (migrate to the folder and select all files with ctrl+A).

Well, yes, it's fun; considering I need to process a 1TB disk.

Same issue if you try to use "Command line automation". Definitely worth dropping an email to Kim as there may be an update due in the near future.

I already sent it.
Basically, I have already completed the task in another program. I just want this one to develop as well.
