Data acquisition is the process of gathering evidence or information. This can be done by using established methods to acquire data from a suspected storage media outlet to gain access to information about the crime or other incident, and potentially using that data as evidence to convict a suspect.


The objective of this lab is to help students learn to monitor a system remotely and to extract hidden text strings and other tasks that include:
Data Acquisition and Duplication
  • Investigating NTFS streams from hard drives
  • Investigating hidden text strings
  • Extracting the hidden content from hard drives


Electronic evidence is fragile by nature and it can be very easily modified, destroyed, or damaged. Even in the booting process, the files can delete temporary files, modify stamps, or alter other data to writing data, and then create new files to the drive using the boot process.

Data Acquisition and Duplication
