The purpose of any computer forensic analysis is to determine if
any illegal, unauthorised or unusual activities have taken place
by capturing and securing data from a computer or digital
and universal use of computers and digital media means that
crucial evidence stored on computers must be taken into
consideration in any legal, civil or criminal investigation.
Therefore computer forensic analysis can involve forensic
examination of laptops, desktops, and hard drives, memory cards,
USB hard discs, floppy disks, CD's, DVD's and any other form of
digital storage media as well as networks and network attached
storage devices in order to gather evidence for any litigation.
Computer Forensic Analysis is used in a wide variety of
civil and legal proceedings including:

data stored on any given computer or associated computer

Full forensic analysis will include the interrogation of all
data storage areas of a submitted exhibit; including the
recovery and analysis of data from any storage device with
detailed information analysis. The information gleaned from
this type of investigation is suitable to be used in any
legal or civil proceedings.
Preview Forensic Analysis:
Preview Forensic Analysis will include the interrogation of
the live data storage areas. This form of analysis will
identify if there is any information present that would
sufficiently warrant a Full Forensic Analysis.

not strong enough to be used in civil or legal proceedings
and is considered preliminary.
