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.
