I have a bat file called sysed which sets attrib to edit config.sys then
resets. But I accidentally didn't timpe the file name and it reset the whole
drive. So I set the whoe drive to unprotect. Is there anything I need to set
to protect in particular?

Also posted in alt.msdos.batch and alt.msdos.batch.nt.

Please don't multi-post (which is posting the same message to multiple
groups, one at a time). Instead, crosspost (posting the message once, to
multiple groups at the same time). You crossposted to the groups I mentioned
above; why didn't you include this group as well? (And yes, I know you posted
there an hour after here.)

No, you didn't. Just all files in whatever folder you where in when you ran
that ATTRIB command (read: might not have changed any file).

Need ? Under DOS ? No. And that includes your config.sys. Doesn't
mean its not a good idea to do it though.
