Superb Forensics and Files Structures book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: File System Forensic Analysis (Paperback)
Easy to read textbook for BSc Forensics and IT Security (though not specific to the course, it's a classic text).
Advanced but easy to understand, with descriptions which are quite riveting. For instance the Intel pentium v Unix and Mac systems... the way they order bytes (the big ending order against little ending ordering is reversed. Did you know that? It's written for Forensics students, yet if you're studying general computing this level of expertise will set you apart from everyone else.
* Volume analysis (Pc, Server, Raid)
* File system analysis
* Fat concepts & data structures
* NTFS concepts
* Ext2 and ext3 concepts
* UFS1 and UFS2 data structures
Incredible depth and breadth, and very accessible in attitude.
A classsic text, that *must* be on the bookshelf of anyone studing Forensics, IT security, Encryption.
Wish I'd read it years ago.
