This is more information from a double thread I found: (Double has been closed)

Tried finding a home for this question, couldn't and landed here ... does anyone know why i would have this -

:KAVLICHS:$DATA attached to files in my harddrive ....?

I'm copying files to an SD Card and it's saying additional info won't be transferred - but it's weird because from the same folder it only chooses to bring up the 'can't add adtnl data' to a selected few and the rest just copy straight across ...i've never seen it before and therefore one tends to believe it can't be good...

anyone ever seen that before ?

The NTFS file system allows each file to contain multiple "streams" or sets of data.
So besides the regular data you have in the file some other information could be stored. For example an older file version, author information etc.
So if you have a file on an NTFS disk partition and you try to move it to another type of disk with a file system that does not support streams any additional file streams would be lost.
What type of file were you moving?
