Software Notes

DROID can perform identification of file formats. Formats are based on PUIDs (Persistent Unique Identifiers). One benefit of PUIDs is it provides the version of a format, for example Acrobat PDF 1.6 - Portable Document Format. See PRONOM technical registry for complete list of formats supported.
