A computer hardware-implemented method, system, and/or computer program product identifies non-synthetic event elements in electronic files. A first set of binary data that describes a synthetic event is received from a requesting computer. The synthetic event is a non-executable descriptor of a set of context-related factors. A processor performs a context-based search of a database of electronic files to identify a relevant electronic file, which includes the synthetic event. The processor then searches the relevant electronic file for at least one non-synthetic event element, which is absent from the synthetic event. In response to determining that the relevant electronic file comprises the non-synthetic event element, the processor transmits a second set of binary data to the requesting computer. This second set of binary data includes the relevant electronic file and a description of an identified non-synthetic event element in the relevant electronic file.
