Toronto, Canada-based PowerSearch Software, a developer of affordable and accessible search technologies, announced the release of Software Version 4.2.

New capabilities include:

File Header Reader: With the file header reading capability, PowerSearch identifies and indexes files even when they have been renamed, providing a more comprehensive index for searching and locating files.

Additional Archive Extraction: PowerSearch has added additional support for email repositories giving the tool the ability to extract additional email archives.

Enhanced Processing Automation: PowerSearch has automated the processing tab enabling users to do individual extractions or run all the processes in an automated format from beginning to end, vastly improving productivity.

Metadata Export Utility: The user can now export all the metadata associated with any file that has been exported as part of a search set through PowerSearch providing all the necessary data to be loaded into a review platform for further review.

PowerSearch uses proprietary technology to locate and search files on local drives, network repositories and Twitter feeds. In addition, the company has just announced the ability to import a text file of search parameters and to collect email messages from webmail accounts, including Yahoo!, Gmail and Hotmail.

PowerSearch extracts email repositories (including live Exchange) and zipped files, indexing the content of emails and electronic documents, making them fully searchable. Search results can be saved and, if necessary, exported into current tools for further review.
