Wave Software’s Trident is an electronic data discovery application that comes in a free “Lite” version and the more extensive “Pro” version. The latter gives the electronic discovery professional a number of data processing options that are built for speed and accuracy. Trident gives users the ability to de-duplicate, filter and cull mail stores, output true PST and NSF files, de-NIST loose files and separate ubiquitous operating system files from user-created content.

The upgrades seen with version 4.5 (or the third prong of the Trident) include the “loose file” handling capability that many e-discovery professionals have been requesting. Loose files are the Microsoft Office, PDF or other files that users create and store within folders on their computers, network shared folders, external storage devices, etc. Loose files exist outside of a traditional mail store container (like an Outlook PST or Lotus Notes NSF file) and may be placed anywhere on the storage medium at the discretion of the user. From the electronic discovery processing professional’s point of view, separating the user-generated content from the standard (and oftentimes ignorable) operating system files can be a difficult and time-consuming task.
