Introducing Mount Image Pro

GetData Mount Image Pro mounts EnCase, FTK, DD, RAW, SMART, SafeBack, ISO, VMWare and other image files as a drive letter (or physical drive) on your computer.

What does this ‘mount as a drive letter’ mean?

GetData Mount Image Pro turns an image file of a computer (or a logical image file) into a drive letter on your computer system. This means that you can:

  • Browse the computer files like you do your own files with programs such as Windows Explorer;
  • Run third party applications, such as virus scanners, spyware scanners over your evidence files;
  • Run programs third party programs on the physical drive, such as GetData’s Recover My Files; and,

you can do all this in a ready only “forensically secure” environment, as the contents of the image file will not be changed.

IMPORTANT: When dealing with forensic evidence files ensure that you have a verified and secured a master copy.

Practical uses for Mount Image Pro

There are many practical applications for Mount Image Pro. For example

  • Cost Effective Access to Forensic Image Files
    Mount Image Pro does not require forensic software to be installed when mounting forensic image files. Police, commercial investigators, lawyers, lawyers etc. use Mount Image Pro to share forensic images with relevant parties in a cost effect and secure manner.
  • Keyword Index
    Once an image has been mounted a keyword index tool, such as Google Desktop, Yahoo Search or X1 can be run over the mounted image to index all files in the image. The contents of the image can then easily be text searched by a third party, such as a lawyer or prosecutor.
  • Virus or Trojan Scan
    Often a defence raised to an allegation about computer misuse is that the system was infected by a virus or a trojan which was responsible for the actions. Mount Image Pro gives the user fast access to scan an image using the latest commercially available virus or Trojan scanners (such as Norton and Mcafee) to test these assertions.
  • Other Third Party Tools
    Mount Image Pro enables the use of any third party software to examine mounted data. Mount Image Pro is widely used by commercial e-discovery platforms.
