NAME
       vfs_streams_depot - EXPERIMENTAL module to store alternate data streams
       in a central directory.

SYNOPSIS
       vfs objects = streams_depot

DESCRIPTION
       This EXPERIMENTAL VFS module is part of the samba(7) suite.

       The vfs_streams_depot enables storing of NTFS alternate data streams in
       the file system. As a normal posix file system does not support the
       concept of multiple data streams per file, the streams_depot module
       stores the data in files in a separate directory.

OPTIONS
       streams_depot:directory = PATH
           Path of the directory where the alternate data streams should be
           stored. Defaults to the sharepath/.streams.

       streams_depot:delete_lost = [ yes | no ]
           In the case of an already existing data streams directory for a
           newly created file the streams directory will be renamed to
           "lost-%lu", random(). With this option lost stream directories will
           be removed instead of renamed.

                  o    no(default) - rename lost streams to "lost-%lu",
                      random().

                  o    yes - remove lost streams.


EXAMPLES
                   [share]
                vfs objects = streams_depot
