Basic Features - Hashing and Image Details

Postby mfanton » Mon Apr 13, 2015 9:38 pm

I just wanted to make sure that I am not overlooking anything. I don't see the ability to do the following:

1. Compute hash value of dd image or physical devices. Only E01 images are hashed.
2. Explicitly state the file system type contained within partition-only images and logical drives (NTFS, EXT4, etc). Only physical disk partitions are identified with their file system type.

These basic forensic features were always available in older versions of Autopsy as well as TSK. Why were they removed in Autopsy v3?

Thanks in advance!

Yes, those features have not been added to v3. v3 is a complete rewrite, so they were not removed as much as they were not added.

Re: file system types. We identify the type based on file system structure. We ignore the type in a partition table even if the type is specified.
