Work with processing errors in Advanced eDiscovery

Processing is the process of file identification, expansion of embedded documents and attachments, text extraction, and Optical Character Recognition (OCR)) of image files and the subsequent indexing of that content.

When you add custodians and non-custodian data sources to a case on the Sources tab, all partially indexed items from Microsoft 365 are processed to make them fully searchable. Likewise, when content is added to a review set from both Microsoft 365 and non-Microsoft 365 data sources, this content is also processed.

The Processing tab in Advanced eDiscovery provides insight into the status of advanced indexing for different processing scenarios.
