Autopsy®  is an open source digital investigation tool (a.k.a. digital forensic tools) that run on Windows and is built on top of The Sleuth Kit®. Autopsy can used to analyze disk images and perform in-depth analysis of file systems (such as NTFS, FAT, HFS+, Ext3, and UFS) and several volume system types.

Examiners and analysts can use the Autopsy to conduct an investigation. Join the Autopsy and sleuthkit users list to ask questions and help others.

Developers can write modules to extend the functionality of both Autopsy and the underlying TSK platform. Refer to the Autopsy Developer’s Guide or the TSK Framework Module Writer’s Guide for details on how to incorporate your tools into TSK and Autopsy.

Commercial Support

Like many open source projects, Autopsy has an active online user community to help with basic problems and maintain email lists for users and developers. Oftentimes this level of support by the community has a difficult time scaling to enterprise level users. Most open source community members invest personal time to answer questions, and enterprise users deserve the responsiveness of dedicated partners who invest their corporate means into the support of the technology.
