English term or phrase:embedded date years
As we discuss in "A Fine Metamess," page 48, there are problems with using file system metadata to classify files. Even so, some data-management systems, including Arkivio's Auto-stor and Kazeon Systems' appliances, rely on file system metadata as their only information source.
Fortunately, most files have additional embedded metadata that give file-classification applications more to work with; for example, a JPEG could have an embedded date years before the file-system creation date. Unfortunately, most users don't go to the effort of entering even basic metadata, like subject, into their files.
