Evidence preservation – Bulletin Reports

The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) presents Partial Results from Prototype Testing Efforts for Disk Imaging Tools: SafeBack 2.0, April 2003, which documents partial results obtained during prototype-testing efforts of SafeBack 2.0, an electronic evidence preservation tool that creates mirror-image backups of computer hard disk drives. This special report describes anomalies detected among the test cases, the testing environment, and expected results; presents results of 35 test assertions; and includes summary log files for each test case. The results provide information necessary for developers to improve tools, users to make informed choices, and the legal community and others to understand the tools’ capabilities.
