Digital media is a hostile environment for a forensic investigator. Idiosyncrasies in file systems, operating system abstractions, application and user activities can make recovering and interpreting photo evidence a laborious process. Adroit Photo Forensics uses the most advanced and most actively developed carver in the industry. SmartCarving™ takes the pain out of collecting photo evidence from a disk image.
Adroit's SmartCarving™ engine supports the following disk image types, raw stream, DD format, Encase Format, Smart Format.

file system agnostic mode it can still recover photos whether a file system is corrupted or not.
