    What is .meta file for?

      Hi All,

      I'm using QVS 9 SR2 and encountered an issue opening a 3MB file through AccessPoint when the file has section access. It takes forever to open the file and it will make the IE hangs. This happens when I replace the existing file with a modified file that has a structure change.

      I did some trial and error tasks for e.g. removing the section access and putting it back... then the issue is resolved after I removed the .meta and .shared files.

      However, I realised that after removing the meta file, I will lose the category information of the file. So I would like to know if anybody knows what does the .meta do? Initially I thought it is perhaps to store security information but seems to be more than that.

      Any input is appreciated. Thanks.
