Autopsy User's Guide


This is the User's Guide for the open source Autopsy platform. Autopsy allows you to examine a hard drive or mobile device and recover evidence from it. This guide should help you with using Autopsy. The developer's guide will help you develop your own Autopsy modules.

Note: For those users running Autopsy on Mac devices, the functionality available through the "Tools" -> "Options" dialog as described in this documentation can be accessed through the system menu bar under "Preferences" or through the Cmd + , (command-comma) shortcut.
