BACKGROUND
FTK Imager is a very versatile tool that can do many things. In the assignment you will perform
several tasks using FTK Imager that a typical forensic analyst will have to do. This assignment
will provide you with the basic usage of FTK Imager.
SCENARIO 1 IMAGING A USB DRIVE

Copyright 2015 Mark McKinnon

FTK IMAGER ASSIGNMENT


Use any portable USB device that you have. Connect it to your computer and image it using
FTK Imager. Fill out the case information for the image. Create both an E01 and a Raw DD
image. Document what you did and include portions of your log files in your report describing
what you imaged and any hash values. Be sure to describe the device you are imaging, if there
are any distinguishing marks, color, size, make, model, etc.. You do not need to include the
images created but you do need to include the log files.
SCENARIO 2 CONVERTING IMAGES
1. Image the file Ftk_Floppy_Copy.001 and convert it to an E01 file (name it whatever you
want to). Fill out the case information and use a compression ratio of 6. Verify that the
file is an exact duplicate of the file. Get a directory listing of the image.
a. What is the SHA1 Hash?
b. 7418c7af4f2bd9599b5f12fb0ced291c538e1bc5
c. What is the MD5 Hash?
d. 288f3010c93817698d9f82595954b823
e. Did you create an exact duplicate of the original image? How do you know you
did? Yes. Once you image the file it tells you if its a match or not
f. What is the size of the E01 File?
g. 2kb
h. How many files are there on the disk?
i. 19
j. How many files are deleted?
k. 12
l. How many files are not deleted?
m. 7
2. Image the File FTK_Floppy_Image.E01 and convert it to an DD file (name it whatever
you want to). Fill out the case information. Verify that the file is an exact duplicate of
the file. Get a directory listing of the image.
a. What is the SHA1 Hash?
b. 7418c7af4f2bd9599b5f12fb0ced291c538e1bc5
c. What is the MD5 Hash?
d. 288f3010c93817698d9f82595954b823
e. Did you create an exact duplicate of the original image? How do you know you
did? Yes. The verify files are a match
f. What is the size of the 001 File?
g. 1440 kb
h. How many bytes per sector are there in this image file?
i. 2880
j. How big is the image file?
k. 368KB

SCENARIO 3 VALIDATING AN IMAGE
1. Image the file Ftk_Floppy_Copy2.001 and convert to an E01 file (name it whatever you
want to). Fill out the case information and use a compression ratio of 9. Verify that the
file is an exact duplicate of the file. Get a directory listing of the image.
a. What is the SHA1 Hash?
b. b14e56d95b161b1d67c17d3a3d73d8402d8d9216
c. What is the MD5 Hash?
d. d9250180d41680673f8a29dabc013cb9
e. Did you create an exact duplicate of the original image? How do you know you
did? Yes. The very results are a match
f. What is the size of the E01 File?
g. 388 kb
h. How many files are there on the disk?
i. 19
j. How many files are deleted?
k. 11
l. How many files are not deleted?
m. 8

SCENARIO 4 RECOVERING DATA


1.

Open up the file FTK_Floppy_Image.E01 in FTK Imager and recover all the deleted
files on the image including directories. Zip up the files in the directory and submit them
with your assignment.

SCENARIO 5 MOUNT AN IMAGE


1. Using FTK Imager mount the image file FTK_Mount_Drive.ad1. Look at the file on the
mounted drive. Answer the following questions about the file.
a. Line Count.
b. Word Count.
c. Character Count.
d. Paragraph Count.
e. Pages.
