X- Ways Trace is a computer forensics tool that allows to track and examine web browsing activity and deletion of files through the Windows recycle bin that took place on a certain computer.
Deciphers Internet Explorer's ever-growing internal history/cache file index.dat. Displays complete URLs, date and time of the last visit, user names, file sizes, filename extensions, and more. Allows to sort by any criterion. Reads from a file you specify, or searches complete folders and subfolders, or even entire hard disks in all files, free space, and slack space, for traces of someone having surfed the Internet. Occassionally, accesses to local files are logged, too. You may search for specific domain, file, and user names.
Also deciphers the hidden Windows recycle bin file info2 located in every Recycled/Recycler folder. Displays the original path and filename, date and time of deletion, file size, and more, sometimes even if the recycle bin has been emptied.
All the details compiled by X-Ways Trace can be exported to MS Excel. The files/disks examined by X-Ways Trace will not be altered by the examination.
