Good morning all !

I'm new in the numeric forensic science and I would like to know if someone also had my problem or know how to resolve it.

When I use the "Access Data FTK Imager" software to make an image of my Sandisk USB key of less than 20MB, I get an archive file (shouldn't it be of another extension?), As well as a dozen files such as "file 002", "file 003", "file 004", etc. And I have the text file.
I've that with the FTK Imager - Version 4.2.1 and I've also try with the version Lite 3.1.1

Do you know why I don't have only one file of type "file 001" like in the explanatory videos?

Thank you for reading and have a nice day!

Check this

In the Image Fragment Size field, specify the maximum
size in MB for each fragment of the image file.

You have a USB storage device that is less than 20 MB? Interesting.

What size are you setting the segment size? The default is 1500 MB with a compression of 6 I believe.
What type of out put are you setting the evidence file to be? E01, AD1 etc?

Ahhh the good ol' days, when a byte was a byte, made out of really round 0's and not too skinny 1's wink
