5 Appendix A: Product Behavior
The information in this specification is applicable to the following Microsoft products or supplemental software. References to product versions include released service packs:
Windows Server 2008 R2 operating system
Windows 8 operating system
Windows Server 2012 operating system
Windows 8.1 operating system
Windows Server 2012 R2 operating system
Exceptions, if any, are noted below. If a service pack or Quick Fix Engineering (QFE) number appears with the product version, behavior changed in that service pack or QFE. The new behavior also applies to subsequent service packs of the product unless otherwise specified. If a product edition appears with the product version, behavior is different in that product edition.
Unless otherwise specified, any statement of optional behavior in this specification that is prescribed using the terms SHOULD or SHOULD NOT implies product behavior in accordance with the SHOULD or SHOULD NOT prescription. Unless otherwise specified, the term MAY implies that the product does not follow the prescription.
<2> Section 2.1: An ADS stream containing these structures always sets the ADSCache_PropertyFlagsValid flag if it is generated on Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, Windows 8.1, or Windows Server 2012 R2. An ADS stream generated on Windows Server 2008 R2 never sets this flag.
<3> Section 2.3: Only Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2 process Property Definition Instance ([MS-FSRM] section 220.127.116.11.5) ADM element instances with Property Definition Instance.Secure ADM attributes set to TRUE. Because these Property Definition Instance ADM element instances are stored in an ADSSecurePropertiesExtensionHeader (section 2.3) structure, which conforms to the layout of the ADSFieldExtensionHeader (section 2.2) structure, Windows Server 2008 R2 retains but does not act on them when manipulating an FCIADS stream.
