Forcing file identification

Contributed by: Pete
This tip is valid for: Both BeOS and Haiku

If you hold down the Windows key (Option on the Mac) while doing an Identify in Tracker, you will force the re-identification of the file(s).

This means that the system’s sniffer rules will be used to reset the file’s type – a process which includes examing the file’s extension (if any) or examing the first few lines of the file for known header data.
