My Road to Digital Forensics Excellence

What has happened

Posted by Paul Bobby on December 18, 2008

It has been a long time since I updated this blog.

Generating evidence sets for Encase benchmarking has been a struggle. I’ve chosen a complete dump of the English wikipedia for my evidence set. A 15gb .7z file uncompresses to a 220Gb .tar file, which then untars to another 220Gigs on my drive. The sheer number of files/folders has caused my own machine to freak out a couple of times – and we’re talking about a process that can take 60hours to do.

I’ve also gotten some time to work on Steadystate again, there will be an update on that before the end of the year.
