Free computer forensic tools
Our list of over 140 free tools, updated several times year, is provided as a free resource for all. Forensic Control provide no support or warranties for the listed software and it is the user’s responsibility to verify licensing agreements. Inclusion on the list does not equate to a recommendation. Using forensic software does not, on its own, make the user a forensic analyst or the output court admissible. Evidence is more likely to be admissible if it is produced by a professional computer forensic analyst
Please note that the For reference section lists applications which appear to be no longer updated, but may still be of use.
We’re happy to receive suggestions for inclusion on this list. The software must be free and unrestricted, that is, fully functional and not time-limited. The software is more likely to be included if it provides something significantly different or better than software already listed. Please send your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org
