Attributes explanation:

Read-only - The directory or file cannot be modified by writing to it or deleting it.
Archive - The directory or file has been changed since it was last backed up.
Hidden - The directory or file is invisible to a normal directory search and cannot be copied or deleted.
System - The directory or file is needed by the operating system. Files with this attribute set are read-only and hidden, even if those attributes are not set.
Indexed - The directory or file is indexed by the Windows Indexing Service on an NTFS volume. Once files are indexed, Windows Explorer can find files that contain specific phrases or words.
Compressed - The directory or file is compressed on an NTFS volume. The directory or file cannot be compressed and encrypted.
Encrypted - The directory or file is encrypted on an NTFS volume. The directory or file cannot be encrypted and compressed. Encryption is provided by the Encrypting File System (EFS). The user who encrypted the file or a local or domain administrator can decrypt encrypted files. The administrator account is called a recovery agent because it has a global key which can decrypt any files. Group policy can be used to make other accounts recovery agents.
Temporary - The file is temporary. File systems attempt to keep all of the data in memory for quicker access rather than flushing the data back to mass storage. A temporary file should be deleted by the application as soon as it is no longer needed.
Sparse file - The file is a sparse file. Sparse files are typically large files whose data are mostly zeros.
Offline - The file is offline. The data of the file is not immediately available.
