Format Matters: DD Outperform E01s for DVR Hard Drives

When it comes to creating a disk image, the E01 image file format is the default imaging option for many computer forensics tools and has arguably become a de-facto standard of sorts. While E01 may be a familiar format, the question is: is it the best format when dealing with drives from DVR system? Considering that DVR hard drives usually contain data that is already heavily compressed and usually have little to no free space, using the DD (or raw) disk image format will result in substantial performance improvements when examining the data after imaging.   

Join Jimmy Schroering, Director of Video Forensics Technology at Magnet Forensics, as he discusses the benefits of the DD image format for DVR analysis.
