Computer Forensic is the emerging concept in the field of Computer Security and Cyber Crimes.The techniques used and the objectives are just same as in the case of data recovery but in a broader context because it also includes the analysis of the data. It’s not a cakewalk but I am going to give a bit of feeling associated with Computer Forensic.

As we know that every trade has its own set of tools and techniques. So here we’ll need some sort of tools which will assist us in performing our task. So we start our journey by visiting osforensics.com and download the software callled OS Forensic which costs you nothing. Now when we have this tool in our arsenal then install it and let’s start playing with it.
