Comparison of the Data Recovery Function of Forensic Tools


Commercially-available digital forensic tools are often large, expensive, complex software products, offering a range of functions to assist in the investigation of digital artifacts. Several authors have raised concerns about the reliability of evidence derived from these tools. This is of particular importance because many forensic tools are closed source and, therefore, are only subject to black box evaluation. In addition, many of the individual functions integrated into forensic tools are available as standalone products, typically at a much lower cost or even free. This paper compares – rather than individually evaluates – the data recovery function of two forensic suites and three standalone non-forensic commercial applications. Experimental results demonstrate that all the tools have comparable performance with respect to the data recovery function. However, some variation exists in the data recovered by the tools.
