X-Ways Forensics & eDiscovery

Following up on a discussion with an eDiscovery consultant, I wanted to show how X-Ways Forensics is a good (if not better at times) tool to have for the eDiscovery folks in ESI collection jobs.  Not that XWF can replace eDiscovery tools, but certainly can complement collection efforts.

I would even go as far to say that an entire eDiscovery matter can be done by solely using X-Ways Forensics depending on the case matter.  For example, if the collection just involves workstations and laptops (even many aspects of server collections), you may not only ‘get by’ using XWF, but can do a more thorough job of collection.  However, when you get into the cloud, XWF is not going to be your best choice for a collection tool.

Here is a short video on how you can use XWF to collect data in a given eDiscovery matter.  

And, Case Studies #5 is published. 

The promo for this week is $75 for the Case Studies series which includes:

  • X-Ways Forensics Practitioner’s Guide Online Course for FREE, and

This promo is only good for 2 days!  The first time I did this promo, it was for 2 weeks and I under estimated the number of registrations.  From now the promos will be a lot shorter.  Get in while you can, you have 2 days this time and the clock has started….
