    Is it possible to use NTFS alternate data streams?

    Is it possible to transfer all the data in files containing NTFS alternate
    data streams? In my experimentation, I only see the data in the default
    stream getting transferred.

    You are right, by our current design, alternate data streams are currently
    not transferred.
