There are many devices that store data in the world today, such as thumb drives, media cards, and CDs. With these external devices, you can increase your storage capacity, improve the performance of your computer that has a slow internal drive, and move it from one place to another. Since someone can use external devices to store data that might not be on their computer, it is imperative to examine these devices as they can have key information during an investigation.
The members of our Forensics Team can conduct a physical image (full image of device), logical image (everything except for unallocated space), or a targeted image (specific data) from the external device. Any data that is stored on the external device would be easily collected by using the various forensic tools we have here at Lexbe.
Please note, that in some instances, Remote Collection may be possible. If you want more information or are interested in this service, please contact our Sales Team at email@example.com.
