Magnet IEF Case File:

Magnet IEF processes the raw, unstructured and disparate data in forensic image, or file dump and extracts the meaningful data for each supported artifact type.

All the digital evidence recovered by a MAGNET IEF Search is organized and stored in an IEF Case File, a database comprised of distinct artifact tables for each supported artifact type. When viewed with IEF Report Viewer theses table layouts and field values are designed to make it easier and faster for Digital Forensics Examiners to review and analyze large volumes of digital evidence.

Keyword Searches
Identify important evidence quickly by searching for specific keywords in IEF Report Viewer. Create keyword lists to get real-time notification on hits while an IEF search is processing.
Get to relevant evidence faster using filters. Isolate evidence from a specific date or time range, or create filters to narrow results based on field values for any supported artifact type.
Bookmark and Notes
When analyzing enormous volumes of data, it can be challenging to keep track of the important facts you discover. Use bookmarks to flag important records. Use notes to explain your interpretation and analysis of the evidence.
Visualize digital evidence in an organized and chronological sequence. IEF Timeline helps you see overall patterns in a individual’s digital activity. Filtering creates timeline views that isolate specific time periods or artifact types.

For what it's worth, I just wanted to thank you for your great software.

I have a homicide trial coming up where a timeline is highly important. Not only did IEF find CRITICAL evidence I would have otherwise not located with Encase (because I wasn't particularly expecting to find this evidence), but the Timeline component of IEF has been a huge help! I was able to include all of the pertinent data in one timeline, producing a report that was both clean and professional.
