At its simplest, eDiscovery is a term used to describe actions taken to collect, sort, identify and understand information stored on computers, hard drives, cell phones, digital cameras, web pages, tablets and other electronic equipment. When electronically stored information (ESI) is needed for legal purposes, eDiscovery can be used to successfully locate and preserve the accurate information. Forensic analysis of data is used to provide details regarding where and when it originated and who may have had access to it.

eDiscovery is the perfect complement to DriveSavers’ world class data recovery service. We implement the highest level of security protocols and government mandates to protect data during analysis or recovery, providing customers the utmost confidence in security and reliability.

The eDiscovery process 
is more daunting, time-consuming and
 expensive than ever before. It is imperative 
that electronic documents of all types receive
 proper handling throughout the eDiscovery 
process, especially while at a third-party
 vendor. The failure to properly preserve and 
produce ESI in litigation can result in serious consequences including court sanctions, loss of reputation and financial implications.
