When a location has sensitive identity match information in it and you wish to keep the item but remove the personal information only, you should utilize the Scrub feature. Scrub is great when you no longer need the personal information but want to keep the original item. This feature is also known as Redact.
Note: Scrub is only available for specific file types searched via the Files search (see below) and is not available for E-Mail or other Search Locations.
The Scrub button is located on the Main ribbon and is enabled for certain file types. You may only scrub Office 2007 and higher files (e.g., docx, xlsx, pptx) and text files (i.e., *.txt, *.log, *.ini). If you would like to add additional extensions to be considered text, like *.bak, you may override default search filters so that those file types are treated as text. See the Override Default Search Filters help topic for more information. The Override Default Search Filters dialog box lets you add additional extensions assuming they are not already handled by Identity Finder as another file type.
There are two ways to Scrub a location:
