There's a wealth of info in the 100+ extra columns available on a server's MS Explorer. For instance, on an email file generated by PX+, there's addresses & subject. Unfortunately, given the nature of the beast, sorting and/or filtering just doesn't work (often too many files). Is there a way to pull in that extended (directory? file?) info from the Fin/Fid/Whatever?


To the best of our knowledge this information is obtained by Windows actually opening and reading the file contents based on the file prefix/header.

The directory entries themselves contain little more than file name, size, create/access/change dates, and permissions.

You would need to open each file and extract the information based on the type of contents.
