Extracting the original file

Use the following procedure to extract the original content of the signed file and save it into a new file.

  1. Perform one of two possible operations:
    • From the signature book window, right-click on the file and select Extract from the pop-up menu, as shown below:

    • From the next window displaying the file signature, click on Extract.
  2. Type in the file name under which the extracted and original file will be saved.

If you extract an over-signed file, the resulting extracted file contains the primary signature but does not contain the over signature. The file extraction removes only one level of signatures.
