Quote:
The software is used mostly by police forces, and allows investigators to extract files from a seized hard drive and view them in a virtual machine, thereby avoiding altering any evidence on the drive.

This is one of those scenarios where I really have to question the ethics of what we do in the software/IT industry. Shouldn't someone tell the police they can just mount the hard drive as read only? Actually shouldn't they have IT specialized forensics investigators who know that?
