VFC has become an essential tool in our forensic investigator's toolkit. It provides investigators an insight into the suspect's perspective by actually seeing the user's desktop, settings and user environment. Screen captures from the suspect's environment add significant weight to the forensic report when describing how the suspect utilized the computer to facilitate the crime. VFC is truly a tool that I rely upon and use in all my computer investigations!
I was very satisfied with MD5's performance in relation to the recent eDisclosure exercise with which they assisted.
MD5 supported my family and I to retrieve personal information in tragic circumstances. Their care, compassion and professionalism made a huge difference to us. Personal and genuine help when we needed it most.

VFC - A great product of real use as a forensic examiner.

I found your VFC Demonstration most useful as it is an area I have been discussing with a colleague and how we would be able to utilise the standalone VM to assist in communicating evidence to lay people. The addition to be able to stitch in a second drive is a brilliant addition to the product as we are now able to fully replicate the users environment rather than just their Windows installation drive. I was scratching my head as to why a user in the wild would ever want to put their paging file on another drive and can happily confirm that I have never seen it but I’m more confident we can overcome the issue thanks to your input.
