I use IEF on every grooming, harassment and peer to peer distribution case that I run. The range of items it searches is amazing and the evidence it returns is priceless.

I have just run it on a major child abuse and distribution case and found the evidence I needed on the suspects drives. We, as an office, have had many many cases solved using IEF’s recovered material. The program is also one of the easiest Forensic tools to run and every examiner should have it in his toolbox.

I want to personally thank you for developing this software.

We had a case in New Hampshire where a male party was trying to "hook up" with a young child to commit sexual acts on her. This child was under the age of 16.

With your program, we were successfully able to get the chats on Facebook between her and the target. This information will be very crucial in the case. The Manchester, NH Police Detective that used your software was so impressed that it eliminated steps he would have used to carve data out with EnCase.
