File Summary Reporting
To help determine the scope of a project, our EDD solutions have the ability to generate a File Summary Report with information on file types, file size, estimated page count and other important information. This report is critical to the review and analysis of electronically stored information and allows both the client and Project Manager to assess the scale of the project.
Electronic De-Duplication (EDD)
Our EDD software has the capability to recognize over 10.5 million different common files and eliminates irrelevant files such as executables, DLL’s, system files and duplicate files. Password-protected, encrypted, corrupted, and unprocessable files are then flagged to avoid unnecessary surprises and delays. Using selected fields, email and attachments can be de-duplicated from email fields such as: From, BCC, Date and Time Sent, Subject, Body and Attachments. A unique algorithm is then used to create a hash value and this hash value is used throughout the process to provide a rational and defensible chain-of-custody.
Known File Identification, Date Range Searching and Keyword Searching help to reduce the amount of data for reviewing. Searching capabilities available by: File Type, File Extension, Date Range, Keywords and by Metadata Fields. Once the relevant documents are identified they can be tagged for production and further review.
