FileAttribute Enumeration 

Indicates the file attributes to use when calling file-access functions.

When you call the Dir, GetAttr, or SetAttr functions, you can use the FileAttribute enumeration in your code in place of the actual values.

The Attributes argument takes the FileAttribute enumeration members.

When performing file I/O operations, the My.Computer.FileSystem object provides greater performance and ease of use than legacy file I/O methods. For more information, see My.Computer.FileSystem Object.
