Re: Would rather ADD 'Where From' metadata TO files
Authored by: Uncle Asad on Dec 08, '10 10:14:23PM

Ah, I remember now what my problem was before: xattr -w does set kMDItemWhereFroms, but does so in an invalid format (this particular attribute should be some form of binary plist, not a string). Thus the Finder and Spotlight/mdls don't recognize the attribute and don't display it.
