"While there was no evidence as to the precise nature of metadata, it seems to me that metadata is "data and information in electronic form". Hummingbird has determined that certain of the documents located on the hard drive and certain of the metadata was relevant. In my view, once Hummingbird has determined that a particular document is relevant, the metadata in relation to such document should be produced. In my view, the metadata is akin to a "time/;date stamp" affixed to a letter or the "fax header" that indicated the time/date of faxing and receipt." (para 9)
