archive attribute

A file classification that indicates whether the file has been updated since the last backup. A bit is set in the file directory to indicate the archive status. When a file is created or saved, the bit is turned on. When it is backed up, the bit is turned off. See file attribute.

For this reason, we are providing a solution in our smart web server by introducing the RBF trained applet filter for CODEABSE and ARCHIVE attribute, which filters those vulnerable applet sections in a HTML web page.
When used, either switch will copy only those files whose archive attribute is on.
Notice that COPY does not affect the archive bit, so if you have a safe copy but you did it with COPY, the archive attribute is still on.
2 or laterr, you can check or change the status of the archive attribute with the ATTRIB command.
