fs-ads

1.1.0 • Public • Published

fs-ads

Js module to manipulate NTFS Alternate Data Stream (ADS) on windows.

Alternate data streams allow more than one data stream to be associated with a filename (a fork),

using the format filename:streamname (e.g., text.txt:extrastream).

You can store extended attributes by ADS in NTFS on windows as an alternative form of fs-xattr
