Exporting items from research folders

If you want to review items offline or present them in evidence to a third party, you must export them. You can export the items in several different formats, including HTML, MSG, and PST. If you export to HTML, you can export review marking information along with each item.

Exporting does not affect the status of items, and you can continue to work on those that you have exported.

You must have the Export Research Items permission to export items from a folder that is not linked to a case. When the folder is linked to a case, you must have the Production permission in the folder to export items from it.

To export the items from a research folder

  1. Click the Research tab in the Discovery Accelerator client.

  2. In the left pane, click the folder from which you want to export some items.

  3. Click the Export tab.

  4. Click New.

  5. Enter the required run details and filter information.

    Discovery Accelerator exports items to a folder on the Discovery Accelerator server rather than to a folder on the computer where you are running the client. If you use the same output folder and export run name for multiple runs, Discovery Accelerator overwrites the report summary each time. It is therefore advisable to give each run a different name.

  6. Click Apply.

  7. Click OK to export the specified number of items.

  8. Wait a few moments for processing to finish, and then browse to the output folder on the Discovery Accelerator server to retrieve the exported items.
