What’s The Raw Header Of A File?

When checking your file with Get-Metadata.com, you will receive information about the Raw Header of your file. This is extra information we provide for your convenience. But what does that Raw Header say about the file? That’s quickly explained.

The Raw Header data shows the first 50 bytes of any file’s header. This information can be crucial for finding out what file type the file in question is. Furthermore, a string of zeros in the Raw Header of a file indicates that the file might be corrupted or is missing important information.
