ADS (Alternate Data Streams)

Hi, I have a question about ADS.

I can generate a hidden file in the following way in any existent file, for example if there is a word shortcut on the desktop of the victim I could generate a file in its metadata in the following way: “notepad word.exe:secret.txt”.

Once this file is generated, is there any way to delete it without deleting the initial shortcut?

Thank you very much!
