Here is the ATTRIB utility's command syntax

ATTRIB [+R | -R] [+A | -A] [+S | -S] [+H | -H] filespec /S

+ Sets an attribute.
- Clears an attribute.
R Read-only file attribute.
A Archive file attribute.
S System file attribute.
H Hidden file attribute.
/S Processes files in all directories in the specified path.

For example if you want to clear the Archive attribute bit of all
the files in a directory, execute the following command line.

ATTRIB -A c:\mydir\*
