Process Data Locations

If you've received media that contains data you would like to process into a review case, you can do so through Media Manager. This topic describes the steps you can take to complete this procedure. Media Manager also provides you the option of copying data from the media you receive to a specified network location, without processing that data into a case. For instructions on that procedure, see Copy Data to Network.

To process data into a case, proceed through the steps below.

  1. Open Media Manager by selecting it on the Enterprise home page or the main menu.
  2. Select the Media tab, then locate the specific medium that contains the data you would like to copy to your network location. If you have not added the medium yet, you can do so by following the steps laid out in Create New Media.
  3. Once you've located the needed medium, open it by double-clicking on its name, or by selecting the icon.
  4. On the Media tab, click Create and Process Data Locations.

  5. If you are not already connected to a Copy Station, you will need to connect the media received in your shipment to an available Copy Station. See Manage Copy Stations for more information.

    1. In the Data Source Status pane, choose a Copy Station. The available drives display to the right.

    2. Click Connect on the selected drive.

  6. Important: If the serial number that is read from the connected drive differs from the data that we entered in when registering the media, a warning message displays.

  7. Complete Steps 1 - 3 (a green checkmark displays next to each step when it is complete.):

    Step 1: Select Paths

    1. Click Scan to scan the selected drive.

    2. Select the directories you want to process.

    3. Click [Root] to drill-down and select the subdirectories you want to process.

    4. Click Next.

    Step 2: Configure Job

    1. From the Select Case drop-down list, select the case into which you want to process the data.

    2. Select the Auto Start Discovery Job checkbox.

    3. Select the type of discovery: Streaming Discovery or Standard Discovery.

    4. Click Next.

    Step 3: Configure Data Locations & Process Data

    1. Select a Custodian or click to create a new custodian.

    2. Select the Source Type of the media.

    3. Click Process. The data is pushed into review using the type of discovery specified.
