Gathering and analyzing forensically data from various types of devices is a highly specialized activity that is not only fit for professionals, but also requires some dedicated tools that can be hard to find. Nonetheless, one of the applications that are tailored specifically for this purpose and which aims to provide all the necessary functions to get the job done is Paraben's Device Seizure.
As soon as you start the application and establish a connection with a supported device you will surely notice that the program was designed with practicality in mind rather than good looks. The features are easily accessible and you will be ale to start the data acquisition procedure on the spot.
As soon as the device is scanned, you can select the content categories that you want to transfer onto the PC. It is also possible to preview the content in textual as well as hexadecimal (HEX) form from the special preview area that is available on the right side of the main window.
Some of the most often used commands are neatly added to the right-click menu, so you will be able to bookmark a specific resource located on the connected device, view its properties or export it to a location of your choosing.
Graphics and multimedia content can be readily copied to the computer, just like other types of data are suited for export in XML or LInk2 formats. Batch transferring is also supported and if you need to have a report for a specific task generated, this is another one click operation.
Thanks to its impressive support for a plethora of devices and to the well thought feature set, which includes a Palm emulator, a SIM cloner and a case converter, Paraben's Device Seizure succeeds in making the job of data analysts more easier. Some polishing around the edges would be desirable in order to make the application attractive for more users.
