Track in the Name of the Law

E-mail used to be an ephemeral thing. Then archival storage came along and we couldn't get rid of it. Now, new rules from the Supreme Court mandate that companies store, and prove they can retrieve, e-mail so they can be used as evidence in a lawsuit.

Storing is the easy part. Disks are cheap and getting cheaper all the time. But knowing what message is where and how to get it back -- now, there's the rub. Fortunately, the rules apply to messages and data that could be relevant to the lawsuit, so nonrelated archives can still be purged.
