You can choose more than one attribute or I even check all attributes!

In my opinion they should all be supported, and the user should have an option to choose which ones to display.

Also, it would be nice if TC gave a context-menu option to make files sparse, since NT does not :\

I agree with oblomov. If there are file attributes available they all should be possibly displayed by TC.
It 'd be also very nice if the different timestamps could be displayed/changed.

I think I can safely say, in *everyones* opinion they should all be supported. The percentages are so close , you can't really make a good choice to which ones to support and which ones not to support...

What's a sparse file anyway? :)

Files with sparse attribute set use less space on hard disk because only the nonzero data is written to disk. It's an NTFS feature.

My poll went a little bit wrong. The sum of all listed attributes is about 100%, which is of course nonsense. If my question had been "If you could choose just one attribute to add. Which one would you choose?" this would haven been allright.
Take the encrypted attribute as example. 35/39 users voted for this atrribute - almost 90%...

If you need more detailed informations on sparse files this is the source:
