    In simple terms, this is data about data elements. Metadata is information used to describe a resource and have a structured format. This information may also refer to the content or intellectual property rights on intellectual properties of particularization (date and format of the resource, for example).

    Re: What is file metadata

    A metadata (or label, tag, label) is a term associated with the file information (eg a picture, article, or video clip), which describes the purpose and allows a classification of information based on taga, metadata tags are usually chosen informally and personally by the author/creator or consumer of the object - that is to say that the more often it is not part of a classification scheme formally defined. Each file is described by metadata , while the contents of the file is written in one or more blocks of storage, according to the size of the file.

    Re: What is file metadata

    Many digital File formats (including WAV, AIFF, MP3) integrate standardized format to store information in text , in addition to pure audio data. It is so much easier to locate a file with this information. Metadata is key to the user who organize and manage their collection of files ,The term metadata is used to define all technical and descriptive information to documents added to better describe them
