New in AXIOM Cyber: Generate Load Files (OPEN BETA)

Generating a load file will be introduced in AXIOM Cyber 4.9 as an open beta feature. We want to ensure you and the eDiscovery partners you’re working with are satisfied with the contents of the load file and all parties are getting everything they need to do their jobs successfully.

Load files generated by AXIOM Cyber include:

  • A plain text delimited file with a .dat extension in the Concordance / Relativity format containing metadata for the included artifacts
  • Folders with accompanying natives and text including:
  • MSG file for email
  • HTML chat threads for chat messages from Slack or other chat-based communication services
  • Original files for documents, media, and other file-based artifacts
