    adds an atribute to a specific file. For example -r makes a file read only, -h makes the file hidden

    seeneedee, That command would remove the hidden, read only and system attribute from all files and folders on the G: drive.

    -h removes the hidden attrib
    -r removes the read only attrib
    -s removes the system attrib
    /s Applies the attrib command-line options to matching files in the current directory and all of its subdirectories.
    /d Applies the attrib command-line options to directories.
