Download TRACE!
Something I almost never think about is the information I might be sharing with other people when I send them a Word document or Excel spreadsheet. Sure, I might share the text contents of the document, but that’s the point of sending it. Depending on the document, you might be sharing a bunch of stuff you never meant to send. For instance, if you tracked changes in a document, there might be some of the changes still sitting in the doc and they might contain information you didn’t want anyone to see. The document properties contain useful bits of info, like Author name and the title, but depending on the context you send the document, these could be incriminating details or you may have included something in one of the other fields never meant to leave your desk. There are steps you can take to flush hidden info from your files prior to sharing them with others, but it’s a good idea to make sure there’s nothing left. Enter TRACE! by Workshare. The app scans Word, Excel and PowerPoint files, as well as email and Web documents for data that might be considered harmful if left behind. The company hopes you’ll be impressed and purchase document control technology but TRACE! serves a helpful purpose without any add-ons. Office 2000 or newer required. [Windows 2k/XP $0.00]
