Recommendations for carving software

Post Posted: Oct 26, 19 02:28

Just wondering what others use/recommend for carving images. My main use would be for images and videos.

Check out Autopsy (which uses PhotoRec for carving); it's free.

You, as well as other members interested in data carving, may find our guide (related to Belkasoft Evidence Center and it capabilities) useful: articles.forensicfocus...ce-center/

I'd always recommend X-Ways, from everything I've tested it has the best results.

Inspired by the links by keydet89 and by the suggestions by tracedf and minime2k9, I decided to find out if the data of the tests by the NIST confirmed that X-Ways and Photorec are the "best" tools around (for image carving, not videos).

I purged the results related to thumbnails (that IMHO have only a very minor relevance when compared to "full size" images) and assembled the rests in a spreadsheet, inventing Shocked my own votes/scores scale.

As expected, X-Ways and Photorec got the best ratings, but there are IMHO some surprises in the other results:
Code:
Tool				   Score	
Ideal Tool (non-existing)	   10,00 	
X-Ways Forensics v17.6		    7,86 	
Photorec v7.0 WIP		    6,91 	
R-Studio v6.2			    6,67 	
Recover My Files v5.2.1		    5,90 	
FTK 4.1				    5,14 	
Adroit Photo Forensics v3.1d	    4,88 	
Encase Forensics v6.18.0.59	    3,64 	
Scalpel v2.0			   -5,03 	
Encase Forensics v7.09.05	 -414,28 	
ILook v2.2.7			 -999,99 <- This is a joke (but the NIST started it)
particularly now I start to understand why users of Encase v6 were so upset by v7.

The spreadsheet is here:
