Hello folks and thank you for tuning in to the E-Discovery Nuts and Bolts Webinar.  I am your E-Discovery Project Management Consultant, Anthony Johnson.

In this episode, we will continue to move along the EDRM model and highlight the importance of the different forms, types, and storage of ESI. 

There are many different forms of electronically stored information (ESI) that should be considered in your quest to uncover relevant evidence.  Principal “forms” that should be considered when discussing the disclosure of ESI should include:

  • Native File
  • Database
  • Spreadsheet
  • Image
  • ASCII, TEXT, and Conversion Formats, i.e., .PDF and .TIFF
  • Video and Audio
  • Paper
  • ALS and Online ESI Repository

Also, there are different “types” of ESI, as well, including:

  • E-mail
  • Word Processing Documents
  • Spreadsheets
  • Voicemail messages and files
  • Backup email files
  • Deleted Emails
  • Data files
  • Program files
  • Backup Archival Tapes
  • Temporary files
  • System History Files

For more information on how to uncover forms, types and locations of ESI, please contact A. Johnson & Associates, LLC, E-Discovery Solutions, at 888-502-0586, or www.ediscoverynow.net.
