Overview of ESI Sync

ESI Sync is quite simply a "Dropbox" for all attachments that are tied to metadata within ESI Analyst. Every import that contains files or attachments whether it is email attachments, pictures, loose files, chat or text message attachments, videos etc. all need to be uploaded to an evidence container first. 

Important Note: All attachments need to be uploaded into an Evidence Container FIRST before the metadata is loaded in ESI Analyst's Import process.
