As discussed in my previous posts here and here, metadata is a hot issue in eDiscovery. Although there are computer programs that attempt to scrub away metadata from emails and documents, they might not always work. But Corel WordPerfect® claims it can do a better job at removing metadata from documents.
Fortunately, the issue of metadata is primarily a Microsoft® Word problem. Word stores information about a document in a hidden area at the end of the file. You can't access it, so you can't remove it. Although there are macro routines that can scrub this invisible area, they are not foolproof.
WordPerfect® handles metadata differently from Word. Features that might store hidden or attached data are readily available, so confidential or sensitive information can be removed from a file before it is shared electronically. This is one of the many reasons that legal professionals favor WordPerfect.
