The ability to detect fragments of deleted image files and to reconstruct these image files from all available fragments on disk is an important activity in the field of digital forensics. Although reconstruction of image files from the file fragments on disk can be accomplished by simply comparing the content of sectors on disk with the content of known files, this brute-force approach can be time consuming. This paper presents results from research into the use of field programmable gate… CONTINUE READING
