WinFE 10 is a go!

TL:DR

Here is the WinFE website with build instructions: www.winfe.net .

Brief overview of some details that may be helpful to know

Developed by Troy Larson of Microsoft in 2008, further developed into a GUI build (WinBuilder) by a number of developers in 2009, with a great write protect tool written by Colin Ramsden in 2012, noted in digital forensic books such as Computer Forensics InfoSec Pro Guide and Computer Forensics and Investigations , taught by FLETC , SEARCH , IACIS , and DFIR Training , documented in dozens of blogs and magazines, WinFE has become a widely accepted and commonly used digital forensics tool. And now you can boot an ARM device and image it with WinFE 10.

Windows Forensic Environment Training available

Typically, WinFE has mostly been law enforcement or association-membership only. Actually, there are no training courses outside of government training. Government training courses have been provided by IACIS, SEARCH, ICAC, NW3C, and FLETC.

The only non-government course is the Windows Forensic Environment online course created in 2014 and updated today with WinFE 10. I’m not counting YouTube videos as formal, documented training…neither should you (please do not put, “I learnt forensics on YouTube” on your court CV…). This course was created by one who has been involved in WinFE development from shortly after it’s initial inception (that’s me!).

Side note : I have a short promo of 60% off the Windows Forensic Environment course for the first 100 people.   Completing the entire course gets you 6 hours of formal, documented training, which is way better to put on your training records than watching a YouTube ‘training’ video. So, if you use WinFE, and want documented proof of training from one of the original developers, here you go!

WinFE Cheats Guide

In a few days, you will see an updated WinFE Cheats Guide available on Amazon.com. Currently, the guide available doesn’t have the WinFE 10 information, but when you see the new cover “Includes WinFE 10” , that will be the updated guide should you wish to purchase the only book in print that focuses only on WinFE. https://www.amazon.com/Ultimate-Cheats-Windows-Forensic-Environment/dp/1790322782
