How do I reverse attrib settings to default?

How do I reverse attrib settings to default? I put the command "ATTRIB -H -R -S /S /D X:." (X = Drive letter) and now it shows hidden files and folders. I then put the command "ATTRIB +H +R +S /S /D X:." and it says that the drive is empty but the side bar still shows folders. When I go to these folders, they are also empty. How do I revert the attributes back to default?

You either must reverse your actions, or else remove additional properties and set up any needed ones. The main needed one is "a" Archive.

A very brief description follows.

How to Remove File Property Details

Open File Explorer. Go to the folder where you store the file you want to remove extra file property details from. Right-click the file and select "Properties" from the context menu.

Display Attributes with xPlorer2 (I use this) or Windows File Explorer. In File Explorer, View Tab, Add Columns, Choose Columns to Add and scroll down, select Attribute.
