file authors not showing in windows explorer
Posted on 2012-03-28
I am trying to determine why when I am looking at files in windows explorer, the author field is blank in a lot of cases. It seems that I can view the authors of word docs and excel files, maybe others too but definately not access files or pdf files. If you look at the properties of the actual file, it has an author listed but will not display in windows explorer.
I have tried from both Windows 7 and Windows XP. Trying to list files in folders on a Windows 2008 server. On my windows 2003 server, it listed no authors at all in that field and on my windows 7 local drive, it listed some authors, some not.
What am I missing? How can I make it list all authors, if the file has an author listed in its properties?
