X-Ways Forensics Reporting


X-Ways Forensics (XWF) includes functionality to add items of interest to one or more groups, or report tables (RTs). RTs are the core of XWF’s reporting functionality. In addition to adding an item to a RT, XWF also allows comments to be associated with objects in your case. When generating a report, XWF allows you to include essentially any piece of information available about a given item in your report, e.g., various dates and times, hash values, image thumbnails, etc.
