Change file attributes post virus cleanup HSD

I have removed a virus from SBS08 however I am unable to remove the System attribute and the hidden attribute from a few of the folders on the server.

I have tried Attribute Changer 7.0. I need some suggestions please.

Try using the command line. Navigate to the parent folder of the folders in question.

If no sibling folders need to be System and/or hidden:
attrib -s -h -r /s *.*

If the target folders have siblings that need to be System then replace the *.* with individual target folder names.

Tom - That worked - I had seen the command but was not running from the directory.

Is there a way to use that command to sub folders within gthe directory.

Thank you

The /s applies the change to all subfolders and files.
