Search for specific file extensions or MIME types

You can quickly pull up all files in your case that are of a certain type (e.g. all PDF files) or of a MIME type (e.g. ‘images,’ ‘email,’ etc.) by running a search from the Search bar. This is also a quick way to find out how many files of a particular type are present in your case.
