Classification of files within a disk image
Detailed description The first stage of our digital preservation process is to create a disk image of any media we recieve. This gives us a single file which we contains all the contents and structures of the original media. These disk images can contain thousands of individual files.

As we ingest a disk we make a note of the basic genre, scope and content of the material on the disk (as well as other technical and descriptive metadata). This can be very time-consuming, so it would be helpful if there were some way to generate a list of keywords or subjects of text files within the disk image, so that we can get an overview of the material on a disk and what it relates to.
