First attrib is a path command so it would be like:
attrib -r c:\path to files *.*
What I do is go to the root of a drive (partition) (cd \) and type in
attrib -r /S *.*
This will remove the read only bits from all files, makes a defrag
You will see a lot of error messages, don't worry about it, just says
you can't remove it from hidden or system files.
To see the switches allow'd with attrib type in: attrib /?
