Issues brainstorm
  • material received through variety of media (floppy disc, CD-R, memory stick) & copied by creators
  • problem of identifying file types - incorrect file extensions, eg period marks in file names interpreted as file extensions after copying
  • identifying creating program/applications required to open files and access content
  • maintaining integrity and authenticity of records, where there are problems of file identification
  • auto update features in certain types of files, eg dates in Word files, leading to creation/modification log being changed when viewing content.  Impact of integrity/authenticity of records?
