Specialized E-Discovery: Email, PST & NSF Conversion

Electronically Stored Information (ESI) Converted for Electronic Discovery Purposes

The days of “paper trails” are gone. Most evidence is stored in computers. Getting to this electronically stored information (ESI) takes an expert that knows how computer systems work and can accurately complete email conversion and procession.

Law firms may use three different operating systems—Windows, Mac and Linux. Companies that use windows may use Microsoft Outlook for communicating in house and with email contacts. Trial Solutions uses PST (personal mail storage) conversion and processing to help attorneys find crucial evidence. The Trial Solutions experts extract data from all types of emails including:

  • Microsoft Outlook (PST)
  • Microsoft Exchange (OST)
  • Novell GroupWise (GWI)
  • Macintosh Email
  • Eudora
  • Netscape Mail
  • AOL
  • ccMail
  • Outlook Express (EML)
  • MBOX
  • Mozilla
  • Pegasus
  • Bloomberg Email

While many law firms still use Windows- based PCs, many have also turned to Macintosh computers. These computers are known for the ability to create sophisticated files with advanced graphic programs. PST conversion and processing differs from Windows. Document and email files can include:

  • Microsoft Office for Mac (Word, Excel, Power Point, Entourage)
  • Open Office
  • Adobe Illustrator
  • Adobe PDF
  • Adobe Photoshop
  • Apple iWork (Keynote, Pages, Numbers)
  • Entourage
  • Tiger Mail
  • Mac Mail
  • Apple iMail
  • Mozilla Thunderbird
  • Eudora
  • Opera

Our email migrations services include Linux file formats which may include OpenOffice, KOffice, GNOME-Office, Mozilla Thunderbird, Opera and Netscape. Many companies use Lotus Notes for in house communications which has a note storage facility (NSF) that retains information. NSFs conversion and processing is crucial in extracting information that you need for a case.

No matter the file type, the email conversion and procession is no good to you if you can’t read the information. We provide E-discovery in many foreign languages including Chinese (simplified), Chinese (traditional), Dutch, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.

Trial Solutions has a software tool that also allows you to review the files in their native (original form). We offer free support and training so that all of your team members understand how to review the files in preparation for trial.
