Feature: Sync metadata - file attributes
// Redirected from: https://github.com/OneDrive/onedrive-explorer-win/issues/1
Would be really useful if OneDrive sync the associated file attributes such as; hidden and read-only flags (at least these basic ones), and expose it to the API as well.
Currently, if you have a read-only or hidden file on a device, after syncing it loses those attributes on the other (except for the timestamp).

I believe this causes custom folder icons within synced OneDrive folder on a Win8.1 machine to be reset back each time OneDrive syncs anything. I'm currently resetting the attributes for each desktop.ini file using a batch file running every few minutes which brings back my icons, but that's not ideal.
