"Do you like free stuff? Even better, how about something that might make your job easier? If so, download the Windows 8 Forensic Guide. It contains information on the Windows 8 user interface, Local and Roaming folder artifacts, the Communications App, and a variety of Registry locations. Unless otherwise noted, this is also useful for Windows 7 and Vista. The Windows 8 Forensic Guide has plenty of screen shots and hyperlinks to quickly get you where you need to be within the guide, so check it out!" [Post Leach Level: 100%]
