NAME

vfs_streams_depot - EXPERIMENTAL module to store alternate data streams in a central directory.  

SYNOPSIS

vfs objects = streams_depot
 

DESCRIPTION

This EXPERIMENTAL VFS module is part of the samba(7) suite.

The vfs_streams_depot enables storing of NTFS alternate data streams in the file system. As a normal posix file system does not support the concept of multiple data streams per file, the streams_depot module stores the data in files in a separate directory.  

OPTIONS

streams_depot:directory = PATH

Path of the directory where the alternate data streams should be stored. Defaults to the sharepath/.streams.

streams_depot:delete_lost = [ yes | no ]

In the case of an already existing data streams directory for a newly created file the streams directory will be renamed to "lost-%lu", random(). With this option lost stream directories will be removed instead of renamed.

• no(default) - rename lost streams to "lost-%lu", random().

• yes - remove lost streams.

 

EXAMPLES

        [share]
        m[blue]vfs objects = streams_depotm[]
