Reviews of Digital Forensic Tools

I’m working on several items for the blog, I’m putting together a review of four forensics tools that I use every day. Part of my job is teaching (and knowledge transfer) so my students often ask what is the best computer forensics tool. My answer is “it depends on the job at hand”. For example, for disk forensics commercially available tools such as EnCase or FTK are great but cost thousands of dollars. There are a number of free and low cost tools out there as well. Below is a list of reviews (planned and in progress).
Autopsy 3.1.1 (In progress)
Paraben P2 Commander (Planned)
EnCase 7 (Planned)
X-Ways forensics (Planned)
Future tools will be reviewed as I have time to work with them. I expect to publish the Autopsy and Paraben reviews within the next week and the other ones over the next 2 to 3 weeks.

UPDATE: Paraben just released P2 Commander version 4.0 so I'm in the process of evaluating it.
