This course is our first in a series introducing Evimetry for forensic data acquisitions. We start with the Evimetry Windows Controller interface and perform a basic full linear (bit-for-bit) acquisition directly from the Controller. The course also introduces Evimetry “blessed” data storage drives and the difference between block-hash and traditional linear hashing for forensic images. It’s time to step up your forensic acquisition game with Evimetry. Come Run With Us.
