    Thanks for your replies, but the command "attrib /?" doesn't list the D attribute, much less the d attribute...
    D (or d) stands for 'Directory' - it's an attribute saying this is a folder, not a file. That's one attribute you cannot change with attrib (obviously) so it doesn't list it.

    And for my part, I have just tested the sixth entry in the set:-
    The 6th attribute shown is L [Reparse point - such as a Junction point made using the mklink command].

    OK, thanks guys. If you've been wondering about my reason for asking about this, I've detailed my underlying question about dual-booting to Ubuntu in the "Installation" forum. I've been struggling for months with this after installing Win10 Pro.
