Windows File Analyzer decodes and analyzes to provide cached information for forensic analysis. Includes a tabbed interface with a multiple-document window and horizontal/vertical/cascade view settings. Analysis results can be printed in user-friendly form. The program includes a variety of analysis tools useful for seeing how much information your computer leaves behind that could represent a privacy risk or for trying to detect nefarious activity.

Features include thumbnail viewers available for Windows XP, ACDSee, Google Picasa, FastStone Viewer, and HP Digital Imaging files, displaying content with stored data and image preview. A Prefetch Analyzer looks at recent programs run and stored in the Prefetch folder while the Shortcut Analyzer for all shortcut files in specified folder and data stored in them. An Index.DAT Analyzer looks at Internet Explorer cookies, temporary files or history while a Recycle Bin decoding tool displays Info2 files that hold recycle bin content (Win2k and XP only).

A PDF-format help file is available from the author website.

Now at version 2.9.0 (The download link at the site is still labeled "MiTeC Windows File Analyzer 2.8.0", but the executable within the zip file shows as 2.9.0)

v2.8.0

Categories classification:

Currently, WindowsFileAnalyser can be looked up under 2 categories
- Files -> Miscellaneous (25)
- Security -> Privacy Tools (42)

Would it be appropriate to expand the list with the newly created "Security -> "Forensic Tools" subcategory ?
