Identifying which files were uploaded to Gmail

Postby incidentresponder » Sun Sep 04, 2016 5:36 pm


I have imported a raw Windows 7 image into Autopsy. I can see from the web history that the user was on Gmail in Chrome and I know that some files were sent out via Gmail. Does anyone know if it's possible to see what files were attached to a Gmail message and sent out via the webmail service?

Try looking at it via the Timeline feature. Focusing on the transaction dates you found in web history, you may be able to correlate MACC times related to those potential attachments.

Otherwise, here are a couple of links for information (see below). Gmail artifacts are a tricky subject. ... t-analysis ... pic&t=2153
