The user plays a central role by picking and tagging or describing those parameters he considers relevant for preservation purposes The application must allow the user to: understand a file inspect its content and nested components tag the whole file or the part of the file he needs

5 VRT as a Virtual FileSystemBrowser Click the OpenFile button To begin the virtualization of a file on the computer.
6 inspect the file as a FileSystem Inspect Button view it using a dedicated viewer available on your machine View Button view it using the vrt-plugin Open Button dump the binary content of the file Dump Button Tag with a label the object Tag Button (Tag Panel) Main Functions
7 Inspect button lets you to descend into the object and to explore it as a > Inspect
8 Images The MicroSOFT Word-Doc document can be inspected inside, and there appear the Images contained into... In the info tab there is other information regarding the Object. Inspect
10 Each object could be also Labeled and then it could be extended semantically once viewed and explored. The add RepInfo button lets you to organize the semantic information that consider effective to the meaningful of that object.
11 REPINFO link concept directly to a ConceptRepository: the KnowledgeManager; by clicking on the KM button and also on instances stored in the Registry Representation INFO. Select button allows the selection of a subset (of modules).
Virtualisation main plugins Specific plugins have been developed in order to investigate different file types: Images : Jpeg, Bmp, Tiff, etc. Word documents Pdf Documents Archives: Zip, Rar, Jar, Tar, TgZip, etc XML Files Channell-Inspection: enable the user to inspect remotely a connection: HTTP inspection FTP inspection
Future works VRT as a Virtual File System Explorer – Open Files on Local file-System Inspect Inside-Content as a set of Files object COMPLEX SIMPLE – Open Socket-Channel establishing a remoteConnection: Explore the HTTP (FTP) non-Local content – Extracts » Hyper Lynks » Images Not integrated
14 Conclusions The virtualizer allows the user to: Analyse a new file Create a personal view of the information needed to perform the preservation Manage different type of files (images, text, etc) Add information Full file tagging Structure tagging Semantical tagging
