Forensics and Law Enforcement
In the course of investigations, detectives sometimes need to preserve digital information. These are formats used in this process. See also Disk Image Formats. In contrast to those raw disk images, forensic formats also store various metadata as well as hash tables to track the origin of data and ensure it is not altered after the fact.
