Virtual Machine Extractor Module

The Virtual Machine Extractor Module adds any virtual machines it finds in a data source to the case as new data sources. This includes virtual machine disk (.vmdk) files and virtual hard drive (.vhd) files. Note that each virtual disk will be extracted to the case folder.

In the example below, the original data source "testImage.img" contained a VHD file. This VHD "alphaFiles.vhd" was added to the case as a new data source, and it was processed by the same ingest modules that were run on the original image.
