BitCurator users have the option to run a number of different reporting tools against their disk images. Although each of these tools can be run individually, users may alternatively use the "Run All" tab of the BitCurator Reporting Tool in order to simultaneously execute fiwalk, the annotated features report, and the BitCurator forensic reports.
Open the BitCurator Reporting Tool by double clicking on the "Forensics Tools" folder on the BitCurator desktop and then double clicking on the "BitCurator Reporting Tool" icon.
Select the "Run All" tab from the options along the top ("Run All" is the default selection, see Figure 1).
Type or navigate to the location of the following files or directories (see Figure 1):
If you use the navigation button to select the Output Directory, type the name of the new directory in the "Name:" field at the top left of the window and then click "Save". Do not use the "Create Folder" button on the right to create this new directory.
Once each of the file and directory fields above are properly filled out, click the "Run" button. The activity bar on the bottom left will indicated that the report generation process is still ongoing. Once complete, a success or error message will appear in the "Command Line Output" window (see Figure 2).
Completion of the steps above generates the following files in the directory you specified under Output Directory in Step 3:
Open the BitCurator reports directory to examine the files. You’ll find visualizations, XLSX transcriptions of file system metadata, high-level reports on file types, and overviews of features identified by bulk_extractor.
