Alternate Data Streams

Recommended Posts

If one choses to wipe alternate data streams by checking the box, does it wipe all the alternate data streams on the system or just the ADS on the files that one is wiping. And if it wipes only those ADS on the files one is wiping, what is the point of not checking the box?

Just those on the files that are being securely overwritten. What's the point of not checking? No idea. What's annoying is that this, and wipe cluster tips, are not checked by default when secure deletion is checked.
