10.4: Open Safari's WhereFrom URLs in the Finder

There's no magic involved; the application doing the download has to set this piece of metadata. I think that currently, only Safari does this.

I used Safari to download the files and still no extra info.

10.4: Open Safari's WhereFrom URLs in the Finder

I've discovered why I was seeing no "More Info" on my downloaded files. It seems that Spotlight is responsible for providing this info and I had excluded my Downloads folder from Spotlight indexing.

10.4: Open Safari's WhereFrom URLs in the Finder

Old topic, I know....

If you download a file with Safari, it will set the Where From: field. But if you copy that file somewhere else, even on the same volume, it's gone. I just discovered this. So, this means, either make sure you don't move your files after downloading them or we need to find out a way to keep that data intact.

Does anyone know of a copy utility which will keep all metadata intact?
