BLOG: Fun Things You Can Do (that you probably didn't know about)

Post by raccoon » Sat Jan 23, 2021 10:20 am

I've been meaning to create a thread documenting semi-obscure knowledge about file and folder management, utilizing technologies, commands and techniques that most people may not be readily acquainted with, from the perspective of accomplishing interesting tasks that you may not have known were possible.

I think I'll start by just adding replies to this thread with different useful tasks and how to accomplish them, and if they're any good then perhaps ask to have a forum mod spawn them as their own thread post.

  • Invisible files with Alternate Data Streams (ADS; Alt Streams) on NTFS volumes.
  • Shortcuts and symbolic links to files and folders, the various types, and their behaviors.
