Overwriting NTFS Streams

Windows NT 4.0, 2000/XP and later operating systems using or supporting NTFS disk partition support so called NTFS streams feature. These are additional data areas associated with file names that may contain data contents. Here is a small test that you may run:
From Windows, click on Start | Run, and then type 
notepad c:\myfile.txt:MySecretData  
Type in "password" click "Save" in "File" menu. Now click on Start | Run, and then type notepad c:\myfile.txt Type in "my data" and click "Save" again. You will see in Windows Explorer that you only have c:\myfile.txt file, that does contain default data stream with the contents "my data". In fact you are also storing the work "password" in "MySecretData" stream. Advanced File Shredder makes sure that the contents of all NTFS streams are overwritten, not just the default data stream.
