@Adrian - my point was that once an attorney has a list of systems and/or end points they can put that information into the request for production or subpoena making it more specific and therefore more likely to be enforced by the court. I’m thinking in the legal context - not the technical one.

@Lawrence - Can you explain what you mean? I am aware of some of the content discovery for litigation, but as much of the information is stored in files (not in relational databases), I am wondering if you have some examples. I am curious if some of the e-discovery tools are working with ISAM files for litigation software as I think some of the CRM and document management tools use ISAM.

The inventory would be an excellent starting point for electronic discovery in litigation, managers and admins should bear that in mind.
