  1. Police boot suspects computer.....

    A post on one of the computer forensics forums in relation to computer forensics standards and specifically about a non computer forensics officer switching on a device that is currently switched off has got me thinking.

  2. SQLite Recovery

    Many recent applications and even operating systems, particularly on mobile phones, have embraced the SQLite database as a standard. This means that as forensic investigators we need to be able to find and parse these databases as part of almost every case.
