What you will see in Google Vault after publishing
Google Vault is now live to all Google users. You can access it directly from the left navigation panel. From there, you should select an attachment. You will then see a link with “View archived item,” and as soon as you click on that, the file downloads automatically. To retrieve the attachment in a convenient way, select the occasion from the corresponding dropdown menu.
How is it done? Vault uploads the files (i.e documents) automatically into your organization’s storage account and renames them according to their metadata. Technically, Google can do this because they don’t require you to change anything on your part. You don’t have even to set up anything as access control or otherwise. It works out of the box and that’s what we like
Examples of what you can do with each categories in the keyhole tool
Keyhole is a versatile tool for finding information about Google indexed sites. To use the Keyhole, you can type in words related to your topic and then browse the keyhole category listing to see what’s available. For example, if I typed “Tesla car” into Keyhole, it would show that there are references to Tesla cars in images, videos, and ‘view source’. This is particularly useful if you want to see what the content of a specific site is like. Let’s say I want to review Tesla Motors’ copywriter marketing strategy (hint hint, Elon).

“How do I find Google Vault?”
Google’s new security service, Google Vault, will help you with this. You can visit the google.com/law site and see to the right of the search box that one of sample searches is “how to understand what goes on in a crime scene”. In order for our organizations to adopt and make use for data retention we’ll need:
A larger understanding of what records are required
Law enforcement access to archived documents will vary on case by case basis
An understanding how data retention should be measured from both custody perspective- duration, frequency and accessibility
Organizations may want a breakdown on cost for implementation vs savings for records disposal

In conclusion, I think it is a very easy process to find Google Vault and I can see why it would be a helpful tool for finding old conversations. Not only that but as a company, Google should have the Vault so they can have access to all the data back at their offices. Also, knowing that they store your information in their datacenter where there are lower energy rates and the probability of natural disasters is removed.
