Extended File Attributes for files on WD NAS RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All

    I know how to access the extended attributes on files using Shell32.dll.

    However, even with impersonation (so that I can successfully access the files), I'm unable to access the folder: shell.namespace(folderPath) is always nothing.

    I presume it's because the NAS isn't a Windows system.

    Can anyone give any pointers on how to access the Tags property (Windows, not EXIF)?

    Thanks for any ideas :)

  • Xmmm... I would say that there are no options for suggestion unless you provide detail explanation about file system which are used on your NAS.

  • Having been beating my head a bit more on this I've come to the conclusion that the issue isn't the file system, but rather the security.

    I'm going to try different methods of impersonation etc., but if anyone has any experience of this I'd really appreciate it :)

    May I propose - try to get working what ever you trying get working on the small FAT partition.

    There will be no security restriction and you will be able to figure out all problem quickly enough.
