- Download the Sysinternals Streams.exe from http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897440.aspx
- I find Sysinternals so useful I create a ‘SysInternals’ folder on my C: drive and then put this into my ‘path’ environment variable so that I can run them from anywhere. However, if this is too much then the easiest is to copy the streams.exe to the root folder you wish to have files unblocked.
- In a command windows, use ‘cd’ to navigate to your folder.
- Type the command ‘streams –s –d subfoldername’ and press enter.

Bulk Unblock Files
Thanks to Nicholas Rogoff for these instructions to bulk unblock files:
NOTE: You want to be running streams.exe one folder above the folder containing the files (e.g. subfoldername). For example, if your files to unblock are located in C:\app\bin, you would run your command as:
C:\app>streams -s -d bin
