FI TOOLS has been replaced by Dark Data Detective, which is a superset of features and usability. This page remains as a reference to this legacy product.
File Investigator TOOLS (FI TOOLS) includes both FI File Find and FI Directory applications, which identify more file types with higher accuracy than any other product available. Imagine searching for files by categories rather than having to specify file extensions for a few file types. You can do that now, from Windows and from the command line. Visit the FI File Find page to see how easy it is to search by categories like Graphic Images, Personal/User Data, Spreadsheets, Digital Audio and Palm OS related files. Or, visit the FI Directory page to see how you can perform the same operations directly from the command line or batch files.
FI File Find – We’ve merged our File Investigator Technology with Windows File Find, to search for files by their File Type, Contents, Operating System Platform, Data Storage Method, File Attributes, plus more.
FI Directory – We’ve merged our File Investigator technology with the DOS Directory command, to search for files by their File Type, Contents, Operating System Platform, Data Storage Method, File Attributes, plus more.
FI TOOLS Columns – File Investigator extracts many different types of information from files while performing the identification process. This is a list of the columns/fields of information available in the FI Tools applications.
Whether you are an End User searching for hidden or lost data on your hard drive, a Forensics Investigator searching a computer for hidden evidence of a crime or a Software Engineer looking for the right technologies to add to your own products, we have the tools that you need.
All of these features may also be added to your own product(s), with the File Investigator OEM API Kit.
