Exercise 1 - Using ProDiscover Basic to Generate Reports

You need to look for spreadsheet accounting information that might have been created with OpenOffice Calc and e-mail correspondence created in Outlook Express. For OpenOffice Calc, search for files with .ods and .sxc extensions. For Outlook Express, look for files with a .dbx extension. When you have found files matching these extensions, bookmark them and generate a report in ProDiscover. Then export the files for further examination in OSForensics.
