Perfect Copies & Forensic Images
Perfect Copies & Forensic Images

FTK® Imager can create perfect copies, or forensic images of computer data without making changes to the original evidence. The forensic image is identical in every way to the original, including file slack and unallocated space or drive free space. This allows you to store the original media away, safe from harm while the investigation proceeds using the image.

Hash Reports
Hash Reports

Generate hash reports for regular files and disk images to use as a benchmark to prove the integrity of your case evidence. When a full drive is imaged, a hash generated by FTK® Imager can be used to verify that the image hash and the drive hash match after the image is created, and that the image has remained unchanged since acquisition.

Bryan Gorczyk
Director of Technology, Renaissance Associates

"Great speed improvements with FTK Imager 4.3, particularly with the verification of multiple images. No longer a need to batch verify multiple images via the command line, as the GUI is able to prioritize and process in parallel without an adverse impact upon performance."
