I’m happy to announce that MetaDiver 2.5.0 is available for download. This is a big release with some fun new stuff.
If you are not familiar with MetaDiver and want to understand what it can do for you, put simply it allows you to review meta-data stored in many files such as pictures, office documents and pdf files. It also allows you to review email including pst files. The email support includes extended mapi which means you can retrieve last verb time among other flags!
You ask what would I do with this information? You could look at the author, subject, title, camera model, date taken, gps or anything that MetaDiver can pull out of the file! An easy example is when you open the properties of a file in Windows and see some of this information. MetaDiver just shows you a lot more and across thousands of files that you can then search!
In this release there are a number of important and exciting new features.
You can now build your own column profiles for different document formats when reviewing meta-data. It’s a simple builder but you can build profile for any set of columns.
Also in this release I’ve introduced 3rd party controls to improve the user experience. You will notice you can ctrl-f to search for text in Tika Strings and Binary Strings! It even supports regex.
You can now filter on a cell value in the grid. This is a nice time saver I have found especially when going through email. An example is when you find a sender or subject or conversationid and then filter on it. You then have just the results for that value showing in the grid!
When selecting a column to search from the drop down it will now auto search to find your text as you type. This makes finding the column you want much faster!
You now select the Columns you want to be exported in the Export window. I know this is a long time coming.
Other stuff includes:
-fix status bar on hex and binary strings screens. -culling columns is now optional -fixed email mapping for message last modified time -added check for path's longer than 255 when selecting case path -"select all" added to grid -misc bug fix
There is more but I’m tired of screenshots. I hope you enjoy this release and use the product. Look forward to feedback!
