Recovery & Restore
Data Forensics is the study of digital data how it is created and used. It involves identifying, preserving, recovering, analyzing, and presenting attributes of digital information. In the technological world, people are using various email clients with them so they face issues several times with the files. For example, Outlook email client when used by the users create data in OST and PST file format. It is clear that OST and PST files are created when a user opts Outlook email client. If the user left Outlook client and go for some cloud-based application like Gmail. It is not possible for the user to access data of PST file without Outlook.
There are several challenges facing data forensics like technical, legal, and administrative challenges. Technical factors include difficulty with encryption, consumption of device storage etc.
Legal challenges include trojans and malware that mislead the investigation. Administrative challenges include accepted standards and governance of data forensics practices.
Here, we are discussing how the Data Forensics work in case of email clients. When the users left an email client or got some files from their friend/relatives, they don't have the required email client to open these files. What to do at that time? At that time, the users look forward for the solutions.
