DeNIST file procedure in conversion processing

Technical Note Details

As part of conversion processing jobs (e.g., Native TIFF+, Native PDF+) certain files that are unlikely to result in evidence are removed from the data set and ignored for further processing.  If you wish for any of these files to be processed, you would need to order this as a special technical support procedure.

Prior to applying our DeNIST procedure, we do extension repair.

Following extension repair we ignore the following system file types from further processing.
