List of digital forensics tools During the 1980s, most digital forensic investigations consisted of "live analysis", examining digital media directly using non-specialist tools.

This first set of tools mainly focused on computer forensics, although in recent years similar tools have evolved for the field of mobile device forensics.[1] Computer forensics[edit] Memory forensics[edit] Memory forensics tools are used to acquire and/or analyze a computer's volatile memory (RAM).
