why ifilemgr do the following?

Forums:

I am using IFileMgr to create directories.
When the function IFileMgr_MkDir succeed, in the corresponding directory, there is a file named '..dir.dat'. So the question is why IFileMgr create this file, and what is the role of it.
Thanks very much.

This file appears only in Win32 Simulators & not on actual device. BREW creates this file to emulate the target EFS in correct way & also for providing access restrictions,etc. There is no more details available.
But, why you want to know this?

In the system, I want to use the AEE_FA_SYSTEM, AEE_FA_FIXED and etc, to restrict the access of folder/file. But I don't know where to set these attributes in the system, so when I find this file, I turn here and ask for some help.
But as your reply, the problem can't be resolved yet by the EFS its self.

You can restrict the folder access by setting up the ACL (Access Control List) for your module in the MIF file.
You can refer to BREW Programming Concepts document and following link http://brew.qualcomm.com/bnry_brew/pdf/brew_2007/Prog-202_Seth_v01_br.pdf for more information.
