networks. qWave enhances AV streaming performance and reliability by ensuring network quality-of-service (QoS) for AV applications. It
provides mechanisms for admission control, run time monitoring and enforcement, application feedback, and traffic prioritization.

Zone.Identifier / Alternate Data Streams (ADS)

Post by rwiper » Tue Nov 12, 2019 6:51 am

Alternate Data Streams (ADS) are pieces of info hidden as metadata on files on NTFS drives. They are not visible in Explorer and the size they take up is not reported by Windows.

Zone.Identifier is generated by applications when user saves files to the local file system from a different security zone. There are 5 most commonly-encountered zone identifiers:

0 – Local Machine Zone, the most trusted zone for content that exists on the local computer;

1 – Local Intranet Zone, for content located on an organization’s intranet;

2 – Trusted Sites Zone, for content located on Web sites that are considered more reputable or trustworthy than other sites on the Internet.

3 – Internet Zone, for Web sites on the Internet that do not belong to another zone;

4 – Restricted Sites Zone, for Web sites that contain potentially-unsafe content.
