New Tool On The Block

I was just turned onto a brand new tool in the mobile forensics game; Phone Image Carver. Phone Image Carver is the latest creation of the Austrailian Software Development company GetData. For those who don’t know about GetData they have excellent carving and recovery tools and are the makers of Mount Image Pro which has many useful forensic uses.

According to the website-

Phone Image Carver is an easy to use sector by sector data carver for phone dumps or cell phone image files. Currently supports:

Hex;
DD;
Bin;
RAW
Easily recover more than 300+ file types using reliable automated file carving scripts.

Most interesting and at $69.95, this should be a handy edition to your mobile forensic toolkit.

The lads at GetData have graciously offered me a test spin of the tool to get up to speed on it (I should also disclose that they mention yours truly’s papers in the Help File; without recompense). I look forward to giving the application a knock about and reporting on it here.

Watch this space!

    Excellent. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I’m aware of their other products but didn’t know they had been working on this.
