Acquire from Almost Anywhere

Forensically Sound Acquisition
EnCase® Forensic produces an exact binary duplicate of the original drive or media, then verifies it by generating MD5 hash values for related image files and assigning CRC values to the data. These checks and balances reveal when evidence has been tampered with or altered, helping to keep all digital evidence forensically sound for use in court proceedings or internal investigations.
Recover files and partitions, detect deleted files by parsing event logs, file signature analysis, and hash analysis, even within compounded files or unallocated disk space.
Examiners can preview results while data is being acquired. Once the image files are created, examiners can search and analyze multiple drives or media simultaneously.
Automated de-NISTing Capabilities
The National Software Reference Library (NSRL) is provided in the EnCase hash library format, allowing user to easily de-NIST their evidence, eliminating thousands of known files from their evidence set. This reduces the time and amount of data that needs to be analyzed significantly.
Multiple File Viewer Support
View hundreds of file formats in native form, built-in Registry viewer, integrated photo viewer, see results on a timeline/calendar.
