    I used the file summary info tab on all our ghost file to describe what the image is and also for revision control. However Recently I am required to copy the file to other parties via FTP rather than just copying them over the network. This has resulted in the summary information being lost. The FTP server is using NTFS so all i can assume is that FTP methodology of how a file is copied is differently to how a local network connection file copy is performed.

    What I need to know is, is their a setting or a way of configuring the FTP server so that it keeps the file summary information?

    Any help would appreciated

    I'm guessing there is not such an option. The summary info is stored in the NTFS stream which doesn't come along for the ride using FTP.
