Our process follows these well-documented stages...
A computer forensics consultant will be assigned to your case from your
initial call. This person will then take the necessary steps to begin
the process of developing an effective strategy for your case by approaching
and implementing our available technologies and methods to suit your
Our computer forensic specialists are trained to identify where key
evidence is most likely to be located on the computer hard drive
(or other digital medium). This is often possible even when the files
have been "deleted" or the medium has been "formatted". Files cannot be
recovered once they are strictly "overwritten", but there are often fragments
of the files or other clues that may contain relevant information to the
case at hand, which, without computer forensics would be lost forever.
After the initial phone consultation, you will receive a detailed quote,
outlining the cost of the proposed services. This proposal will be tailored
to meet your needs and budget.
The data collection and documentation phase of our computer forensic/e-Discovery
services begin once you send the digital media to our laboratory via
FedEx overnight services. Datarecovery.com engineers can often
determine whether computer evidence was tampered with, altered, damaged
or removed. In many cases, dates of deletion or tampering can also be
recovered or accurately estimated.
Depending on the requirements of our client, we can produce reports
exhibiting our findings. Because every case has different requirements,
the written report length and nature vary greatly.
Once the computer forensic investigation is complete, our
specialists can support your case by providing expert witness testimony.
