FTK® Imager 4.5

FTK® Imager is a data preview and imaging tool used to acquire data (evidence) in a forensically sound manner by creating copies of data without making changes to the original evidence.

What's New?

The release of 4.5 follows earlier releases of 4.3.0 and which included significant speed improvements in image creation (we've seen imaging time cut in half) and additional evidence processing improvements including XFS file system support. Users can parse XFS file systems (versions 3, 4 & 5) when investigating and collecting from RHEL Linux environments. 4.5 brings with it improvements to the command line, disk imaging, evidence parsing and memory dump. 

What does FTK Imager allow you to do?
  • Create forensic images of local hard drives, CDs and DVDs, thumb drives or other USB devices, entire folders, or individual files from various places within the media.

  • Preview files and folders on local hard drives, network drives, CDs and DVDs, thumb drives or other USB devices.

  • Preview the contents of forensic images stored on the local machine or on a network drive.

  • Mount an image for a read-only view that leverages Windows® Internet Explorer® to see the content of the image exactly as the user saw it on the original drive.

  • Export files and folders from forensic images.

  • See and recover files that have been deleted from the Recycle Bin, but have not yet been overwritten on the drive.

  • Create hashes of files to check the integrity of the data by using either of the two hash functions available in FTK Imager: Message Digest 5 (MD5) and Secure Hash Algorithm (SHA-1).

  • Generate hash reports for regular files and disk images (including files inside disk images) that you can later 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.
