    Disk Cleanup

    The question is, what does it do to files that are open. Does it just skip them?

    Disk Cleanup

    Alright, This is a very dumb question and I am sure it's out there somewhere if I jumped around google for a couple minutes. Does anyone know offhand what Disk Cleanup does to files that are currently in use? Also, Do you know the effects of the compression of the files? (Targetting XP Machines)...

    How do I search in ftk imager

    This is not meant to offend you but I would pay attention to the dates of the posts you reply to. This one was two years ago, a good rule of thumb on forums is to not bring up "dead" threads unless needed.

    I used Kroll after reaching out to a couple of companies. (If anyone was interested) Also want to note that they have a website that shows you the status of the hard drive.

    Hard Drive Repair

    I realize that most of you might have different solutions for hard drive repair but I thought it would be useful to get an overview of vendor searching and also common solutions. I have recently had couples hard drives come in that were damaged that needed to be analyzed. In a couple cases I...

    Where Do I Begin?

    I don't believe Bloomsburg University offers online classes. I would suggest looking into an online Masters degree since you already have your bachelors. But if you are interested in a Bachelors degree I would refer to the post made by Phosphorous. Utica would probably be one of my first choices.

    3rd year CF student -- looking for internship

    I know that the FBI does hire interns for computer forensics. But I would also look into the NSA or CIA. There is a good amount of computer forensic consulting firms to look into along with government contractors too which may lead to a long term job in the future. Most of the government...

    Registry Analysis

    Good points. In this situation the user would be fired and you would be the acting IT Administrator. There is no need for looking into legal ramifications. It would just be the case of finding if the user had any strange programs on his computer or if he moved documents off his laptop onto a...

    Question about certifications and a bachelors degree

    Not sure if this answers your question. But it seems that you have two things going on here, either going towards Security or going towards Computer Forensics. Some jobs in the "CF" field require a great deal of travelling and some don't. I would imagine some of the higher paying jobs require...

    Am I on the right track???

    It depends on what jobs you apply to. Some jobs just simply require that you have your A+ Certification and some don't. You can still apply to these jobs and possibly get them without any certifications but it depends on what they are looking for. In my opinion people who don't know what they...

    Where Do I Begin?

    To be honest I am not sure how online schools really work out their programs. But I think it would be more beneficial to get hands on experience. Going on campus may give you the opportunity to get familiar with Encase and FTK which aren't cheap.

    Best way to make a career switch, already have degree

    Engrdean, I would advise you to go with option 3 or 4. A degree will only get you so far, the best way to figure out what you need to do is searching jobs that are currently posted and comparing them to your resume and then go from there. With your education you could look for an entry level job...

    Popular Computer Forensic Tools

    This is really discussed all over these forums if you just look around more. There is actually a thread dedicated to "beginners" with computer forensics. EnCE is a well known tool and widely accepted. You should also look into FTK. There are many tools out there but I feel that the best way to...

    Internship Value?

    Working for the government I would assume you would most likely secure a job for the future, probably get a security clearance and also have a secure job. Cons: You will probably do the same thing over and over again. Working for a private firm, you will get a range of experience depending on...

    Unless there is a job that you could get close to where you live, I'd say no. Because you would probably either have to relocate or travel often. That's just my opinion, I may be wrong.
