Convert Data to Formats Required for eDiscovery and Compliance
Messages/Folders • Attachments • Archives • Address Books • Calendars •
Processing Lotus Notes in an eDiscovery tool takes a lot longer than processing Outlook, do you ever need to break down that monster size PST into smaller PST files or just need to extract calendar items, exclude from your collection/processing job that folder marked “Private” from within the mailbox…we can do all this and much much more via our Transend Migrator Forensic tool.
Transend Migrator Forensic Edition contains a rich set of features that make up the most powerful, flexible and customizable legal discovery conversion tool on the market. While the full list of features are described in more detail in the White Papers and Help File, below are some of the more commonly used features:
Transend Migrator Forensic Edition includes the ability to remove duplicate email messages. Duplicate email messages are determined by using the MD5 hash algorithm. The MD5 hash creates a unique mathematical value by analyzing certain properties of the email message, including message body, subject, date, sender, recipient list, attachment header and attachment data. All or a subset of these fields can be included in the MD5 hash value. Through these fields, Transend Migrator Forensic Edition is able to determine which messages are duplicate or unique.
Content Based Searching & Message Culling
A simple text search feature searches through messages and attachments, outputting only the items matching search terms. It finds and converts messages based upon the header metadata, message content, attachment name, or attachment content.
Selecting Specific Folders for Conversion
By default Transend Migrator Forensic Edition converts all folders in the source email mailbox. However, users can choose to convert only specific folders, or exclude specific folders from their conversion.
Convert more than one account at a time with Concurrent Migrations. During a batch process, Transend Migrator Forensic Edition will convert each account in entry order. It starts at the top and works through the list until the list is complete. By increasing the number of Concurrent Migrations, a significant increase in conversion throughput is achieved.
The Conversion Monitor displays the real-time status of all user mailboxes as they are converted. The Conversion Monitor is a multi-threaded process, which means that multiple accounts can be converted at the same time if the email systems support concurrent conversions.
Users may schedule a conversion to begin at a later time by setting the start time on theConversion Schedule screen. Conversions performed later in the evening generally receive optimal performance, bandwidth, and no interruption. If there are other processes that must begin while the conversion is running then users may also pause the conversion, and continue after the processes are complete.
Inventory Source Data
Get a snapshot of your source data prior to migration by creating a report of the source account. This report will list the folder, email, and attachment totals. You may also customize the report to include each folder name and subtotals by folder.
Hundreds of Custom Options allow the default behavior of Transend Migrator Forensic Edition to be altered. General options and email system-specific options allow customization to any particular conversion scenario.
Transend Migrator Forensic Edition automatically determines what type of character set conversion is necessary.
Command Line Processing
While Transend Migrator Forensic Edition no longer requires that users run batch mode via command line only, the functionality still remains. For those who prefer, batch conversions can be automated via command line to run in virtually any environment or specialized situation.
Conversion reports in XML format will be created after each run, and they can be viewed and saved with Microsoft Excel. Custom Options are available to increase or decrease the level of detail captured in reports.
The default detail contained within the XML Report contains the following information:
Transend Migrator will create a master log file that contains detailed information about the migration session. User specific log files will also be created that contain detailed information about a specific user migration, including errors that may have occurred. The log files are HTML and are viewable in an Internet browser. The option to create text based log files is also available.
