    FYI, you may want to re-word this on your “Blackberry Forensics” blog:

    I recommend making a working copy and a archive copy. Now reseal and store your exhibit.

    Recommend? That’s a mandate period.

    “After you’ve made a working copy and an archive, reseal and store your exhibit”

    Remember, the key is to keep evidence as taint free as possible while obtaining bit by bit copies for analysis afterwards. Your message can be misinterpretted by newcomers to forensics where one small mistake such as working on a live copy can render that evidence useless.
