With "archive bit" I mean a MS-DOS file attribute (like "read only", "system" or "hidden").
When the "archive" attribute of a file is set, that file is presumed to be changed after the last
backup and then must be copied again. The backup aplication reset the "archive" attribute when
copy a file. On the other hand, the operating system (DOS, Windows, etc) set it when the file is
Why rsync set this attribute on the copy, even when the original file is unchanged?
