    How to Manipulate File Summary Tab Information Using C#.NET?

  • User profile image

    I don't think there is a documented way to do it. I believe that information is a combination the following:

    - User entered data stored in an undocumented NTFS alternate file stream.
    - Information extracted from the file's OLE document properties, if any exist.
    - Metadata from common file formats (like various media files).

    All this is likely extracted either by a built in property sheet handler for the Summary tab or by some other component that supplies the info to that handler.

    And I probably wouldn't bother with it as Vista's search APIs will replace it.
