Re: Alternate Data Streams - programs for managing

Thanks for posting that! If I even noticed that capability, I forgot it. I should have known there would be a way to see the stream size. The author of ADS Shell, whose name is Alexey, was very thorough.

programs that create custom properties that Everything could use

It would be great if we could define our own file properties and then use them as search criteria, sort criteria, and columns in Everything. So I'm looking for programs that give us a means to do this. Just now I discovered a custom file properties mechanism in Microsoft Office. Here (well buried!) ...

File Meta ( https://github.com/Dijji/FileMeta ) lets you add properties to files via the File Meta Property Handler. The properties are stored in an alternate file stream. It seems that the properties you can add are drawn from the properties registered in the Windows Property System. As such these ...
