    Attrib *.* not removing hidden attribute

    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

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