Windows Windows Vista will improve search functionality on a PC by letting users tag files with metadata, but those tags could cause unwanted and embarrassing information disclosure, Gartner analysts warned.

Member since:

The only new metadata I've noticed since WinFS was pulled is the TransactionalNTFS (TxF) stuff. Actually it took up a noticeably large amount of space on my other drives and I noticed it when I was defragging. I think there really isn't a security issue but it would be nice for MS or someone to release a tool that would let you strip out the extra metadata files. Hmmm. Maybe just converting back to NT4 or 2000's version of NTFS. Is there a program that does that?
