$Orphan Files\Challenge Graphics

evidence/Search Screenshots/OrphanFiles_Challenge_Graphics.png shows the results from a search in the Lucene index mentioned earlier. There is a deleted folder called Challenge Graphics filled with images. As you can see in the picture, some of these files are recoverable and text has been extracted from their header fields. Note the pictures were taken by a Cannon PowerShot, etc. Because we believe the improper sanitizing was unintentional we did not use the information past confirming it was recoverable. A copy of this data is located in the Challenge_Graphics subdirectory of the evidence directory.
