    I did some experimenting with WinDbg and could find no instance of the hidden or system attribute being set.

    But I did notice an inexplicable changing of attributes. Below, "e:\temp" is "t:\". After the DEL command (which did nothing) dir1 has acquired the archive attribute.

    Code:
    t:\> md dir1
    
    t:\> touch /c dir1\file1
    2011-07-26 12:56:38.194  T:\dir1\file1
    
    t:\> attrib /s /d *
    ____D_________  T:\dir1
    ___A__________  T:\dir1\file1
    
    t:\> del /[d-1,1980-1-1] /s /x /z /y /e /k e:\temp
         0 files deleted
    
    t:\> attrib /s /d *
    ___AD_________  T:\dir1
    ___A__________  T:\dir1\file1
