I know there are laws involved with investigating a computer. I just added a virtual drive to my lap top and am downloading some forensic tools/software to use on my own computer. But, if I wanted to use these same tools/software on lets say my wifes laptop, what additional hardware would I need? imaging devices, adapters, cables, etc..? I have not found a job that would allow me to use my degree so I am trying to practice on my own computers to gain some experience so when the time comes I can be a little more prepared. Any info will help. Thanks.

I'm only in my first year of computer forensic classes in college so sorry if my information isn't 100% correct.

but for what my teachers been saying, there are programs out there that let you copy all there information on their computer without writing to it and you would just use your copy of the data.

I could be wrong so i'm very sorry if i miss understood my teacher..

What OS are you using for your exam workstation? If it is Windows you will need some form of write-blocking. If you are just examining image files in Windows, you would just need the computer and your software.

Linux depends on the distro you are using. Some auto-mount, some do not.

Hard to make an informed response with the limited info you provided.
