Add files to project

After you have adequately prepared your files for import, you can begin editing your files using the system. For reference, CaseGuard is designed to handle a wide variety of supported media formats,  meaning you can work with video footage, audio files, images, PDFs, email messages, and documents, among others.

Get started

Importing your media into CaseGuard is simple.

  • Start or open a project using one of the following three different ways:
    • Go to File –> New Project / Open Project within the Menu Bar in the system.



    • Click From within the Shortcuts Bar to create a new project, or Click to open an existing project.


    • From within the starting screen in the software,  press on your keyboard (Ctrl + N) to create a new project, or press (Ctrl +O) to open an existing project.


    • Select the file you want to import.  If the file does not appear, select the option for showing all files from the Files Of Type.

CaseGuard add files

Before you upload, please be aware that your original files can’t be renamed once they’re uploaded. Make sure you use the appropriate name before uploading them. However, the version you end up exporting can be renamed. To learn about file naming best practices, see Prepare Files for Import.

Import media: From within the Project Files Panel, click to add files to the project.

    • Click Open within your file explorer to import your file(s) to the software.
    • Your file(s) may be automatically converted to a standard format. When this process is done, the converted file will appear within the Project Files panel.
    • You can delete any file you add to the system by clicking the Delete button within the Project Files panel.
