It means that the archive bit is set (used to identify files changed since the last normal backup)

Every file has certain "attributes" or characteristics that are assigned to it.  Some of these can be changed by anyone, some of them get changed automatically by certain system functions, and some of them can be changed only by an administrator.  The basic file attributes used by Windows (actually these go all the way back to MS-DOS) are:

A - Archive File
R - Read Only File
S - System File
H - Hidden File
