What is "Archive Attributes" in windows backup?

Or, How ‘Archive Attributes’ helps in windows level folders/files backup

Archive Attributes: This is a technology which helps backups to be performed in the way we required. Archive attributes set an identity on file/folder or data as which file/folder or data have been backed up in last recent backup performed and which has not been backed up yet...

Archive Attributes Status (Before Backup): All files and folder will be having "Check Mark Enabled" on "Folder is ready for archiving" option.

If the check mark is there, means this folder/file has not been backed up yet.  You can refer the below screenshot for reference or you can verify it on your computer's data by going to that folder's Properties > General Tab > Advance Option

Archive Attributes Status (After Backup): All files and folders will be having "Check Mark Cleared" on "Folder is ready for archiving option".

Cheers, please write me back if you have any query or feedback on this.
