Confirm Stream Loss - EMC Stream:$DATA


ccconner

Recommended Posts

I am attempting to transfer various files from my hard drive to an external hard drive (USB 2.0).

 

Often the transfer is interrupted by the following message window:

 

 

- Confirm Stream Loss

 

- Extra information attached to "File name" might be lost if you continue

- copying. The contents of the file will not be affected. Information that

- might be lost includes:

 

- :Roxio EMC Stream:$DATA

 

 

 

What is this extra information and what are the side effects of such a loss.

Apparently you're copying from an NTFS partition to a FAT32 partition? This answer posted in the EMC 8 forum. Basically, the NTFS file system allows multiple streams, but FAT 32 doesn't, so you're getting a warning about losing some stream data, but it's fine. Read the answer linked above.

Good catch.

 

Every external (and most internal ) hard drives that I've purchased have to be reformatted as NTSF.
