First post and not an expert on this subject what so ever, but I have recently enrolled on a OU course via distant learning and am struggling with the content and level of expected knowledge I should already have had!

Anyway, one of my assignments is to describe attributes of two forensic tools from a list of four and then explain why the ones I have chosen are better than the other two! I have not used any of them, so for me to write pro's and con's of each and understand them all, is, well, a bit stressful! I would appreciate any help and advice and personal experiences on what you found useful on these tools. If you want to PM me to ask for any more information, then please feel free.

The four tools are:
Encase
FTK
HELIX
XRY

Many thanks, if any, in advance

Encase - has Enscript programming language for customization
FTK - has great built-in indexing and search functionality
Helix - there is a free version
XRY - one of these things is not like the others, not sure why you have a mobile forensic tool in this list. A good tool, but not in the same category as the others.

PreferredUser, many thanks and appreciate the reply. I am slowly reading up on manuals, other discussions etc

Lots of gobbilly-jook and terms which are starting to mean things to me. Serves me right really but not complaining.

Thanks again
