The Autopsy Forensic Browser is a graphical interface to The Sleuth Kit. Together, they can analyze Windows and UNIX disks and file systems (NTFS, FAT, UFS1/2, Ext2/3). Version 3.0 of Autopsy is a complete re-write and this page describes its features.
Autopsy 3 has been designed to be a graphical platform for open source digital forensics tools. It was written in Java using the NetBeans Platform. This approach allows Autopsy to run on multiple platforms (Windows, OS X, Linux, etc.) and have a modular framework that makes it easy to incorporate other open source forensics tools and create an end-to-end solution. Autopsy 3.0 is faster and easier to use than Autopsy 2.0
