Attrib *.* not removing hidden attribute

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Robert Morley, Feb 11, 2009.

  1. Okay, in previous OS's, I'm pretty sure the following command would remove
    all of the various attributes on all files and folders within the current one:

    ATTRIB *.* -r -h -s -a /s

    On Vista, it seems this no longer functions as expected. Hidden folders
    remain hidden even after executing this command. What gives?



    Thanks,
    Rob

  2. Never mind, my bad. Somehow I missed the /D option.
