GetData Launches ‘Forensic Explorer’ Computer Forensics Software

GetData Forensics has announced the release of its computer forensics analysis software, Forensic Explorer. With an easy to use interface and a strong forensic tool set, Forensics Explorer offers investigators a cost effective but powerful alternative to current industry tools.

Established in 2002 by former law enforcement officers, GetData is already known in the computer forensics community for Mount Image Pro and Recover My Files. “With our investigations background, a forensic analysis tool is a natural progression for our software” said Director John Hunter.

Forensic Explorer supports the analysis of all common forensic image formats, including the latest Ex01, Lx01 and AD1 image files. It can be used to examine FAT, NTFS, HFS and EXT file systems.

With modules for file system analysis, email, keyword search, registry and bookmarking, Forensic Explorer has the essentials. It also integrates DTSearch® keyword indexing technology and Digital Metaphors Report Builder® automated reporting. Data carving is a clear strength of the program, with out-of-the-box support for more than 300 file types.

The flexibility of Forensic Explorer comes in its strong scripting platform. The user has access to customize many aspects of the program including menus, columns and filters. A comprehensive library of scripts is provided which includes skin-tone, entropy and GPS co-ordinate extraction.
