It is sometimes important to hide personal information from the receiver, that is attached to the document. Following are the topics that will help you clean your files from metadata using C#.
Metadata is the data that provides information about the actual data. It is commonly described as "data about data". When sending a file to someone, it is not a good practice to send metadata along.

After reading this article, you can build your own metadata cleaner java application. It can support adding, modifying, extraction, and removing metadata from a large list of supported formats of word-processing documents, spreadsheets, presentations, PDF files, images, emails, eBooks, drawings, zip files, etc.

Before going in-depth to Metadata management, let’s discuss what the metadata is? The Metadata summarizes basic information about data. In other words, it’s an information which describes the data that contained in something like a web page, document, or file.
