New Feature: Virtual Folders

Published on August 29, 2019 by

We just released a major update – virtual folders. For some results, there is a new “Tree View” tab. It shows items that are related either because they are part of one container file, or because the original file was too big and was automatically split into multiple files.

To put it simple, the Tree View allows the user to view other items that are part of the original data.

Here’s an example that shows the tree view: https://intelx.io/?did=70e1f9b2-d527-4ccb-a6bf-65ea1cddd558

This feature is available for the data categories “Public Leaks” and “Dumpster”, which you can use as filters in the Advanced menu next to the search button.

Why this is an important feature

Every day we index an increasing amount of data. Currently, we are indexing the Collection #1 data as part of the “Public Leaks” category. Next, we will index Collection 2-5 and other data leaks floating around.

This means that every day we add millions and millions of additional records to our search index. One problem that came up was fragmentation of data and losing context when splitting files apart.

When the end-user searches for something and finds an individual result, context can be crucial. Where did the result come from? What else was part of the original source? Are there additional items of interest from the original data?

To answer these questions, we created virtual folders that link different items together and show it to the end-user as the new “Tree View” tab.

When the Tree View is available

You will see the Tree View when the result meets the following conditions:

  • The result is part of the data category “Public Leaks” or “Dumpster”, and
  • The result is part of a virtual folder, either because,
    • It was part of a container (like ZIP or RAR file) or
    • The result was originally a large file that was split up into multiple files to make presentation to the end-user feasible.
