Complements to the coders - just one more thing

Postby Vidyarthi » Thu Aug 28, 2014 9:36 am

One of the unexpectedly nice features of X1 Search 8 is that the preview pane can accurately display a document EVEN THOUGH the file extension is wrong.

We've had to do some forensic work on files that had been bulk-renamed with sequential hexadecimal filenames and all with extension .000 (the NTFS shell program that had maintained the filename index became corrupted) and the task of identifying file contents and renaming them is much much easier because of the power of the preview screen.

Some files of course aren't that easy - jpgs, zips, etc. - so a little more sleuthing is needed. That's why I'm going to add an enhancement request for something to help identify native file formats.

Other than that, I am extremely pleased.
