Custodian De-Duplication

Definition(s)

  • Culls a document if multiple copies of that document reside within the same custodian’s data set. For example, if Mr. A and Mr. B each have a copy of a specific document, and Mr. C has two copies, the system will maintain one copy each for Mr. A, Mr. B, and Mr. C.
