FAQ - Uploads and Productions

Q. I have issues in my native upload. How can I fix them?

A. To troubleshoot upload issues, please click on the “Examine” portion of the card. This will take you to a search of the documents that did not convert properly. From there, you can check the metadata panel to see the filepath of the document and navigate to it on your local computer. Once you are looking at the document, you can see if it’s encrypted, won’t open locally, or has other issues that will prevent successful conversion.

If the document appears fine when viewing it locally, please reach out to Everlaw support (support@everlaw.com).


Q. How can I redact spreadsheets?

A. You can only redact documents that are available in image view. If there are spreadsheets you want to redact, create a search or binder that targets those documents. Then, re-process those spreadsheets by clicking on the export icon on the results table toolbar and navigating to “Process.” Make sure to choose to image all documents and not to create placeholders for documents that are difficult to image.Then, simply redact them using the redaction tool as you would any document. Natives will never be produced for documents you choose to redact, since it is not possible to redact a native document.


Q. Why am I unable to upload my documents?

A. One common cause of an upload failure is trying to upload too many files. The uploader will only accept up to fifty files at a time. To upload an entire folder or series of folders, you need to zip up the top level folder. The uploader will then accept the file, even though it contains multiple other files. Information on how to zip up (compress) folders is available here for Windows and here for Mac OS X.

Another cause of a failed upload is a bad internet connection. If your internet connection is lost, you will receive an error when uploading your documents. For very large files, you can resume uploading them after the upload fails instead of having to start over. You can test your upload speed here. If it is unusually slow, it is likely that your files will not upload correctly. For very large files,


Q. How do I access my uploaded files once they've been successfully processed?
