  • Add option to remove read-only flag when copying

    Hello, I use BeyondCompare regularly to copy/sync files from a source within Team Foundation Server (TFS) version control to a location not under version control. All files in TFS have the read-only flag set to true. I would like to be able to remove that read-only flag when I copy the files. Could this option be added to the session settings?

    The option would look like: "Remove read-only flag when copying" true/false

    Or, as an alternative, is there another way to accomplish this? I prefer to use Beyond Compare to do my copying since I do not always want to copy all of the files.

    Thanks for your time!

    We do not have this option, but you can filter your display to only show files with the Read-Only flag set. You can then perform an Expand All, Select All Files command, Shift+Arrow to select only one side, and remove the Read-Only flag with our Attributes command.
