Forensic Innovations, Inc., analyzes the million file corpus

June 18th, 2010 No comments

Forensic Innovations, Inc., makers of File Investigator TOOLS, has performed an analysis of the 986,278 files in the “1 million file corpus”. (13,722 files in the corpus were removed earlier this year because they were from California State Government web servers that were in the .gov domain and mistakingly collected as part of the original collection effort.)

We would like to thank Forensic Innovations for their work in support of this project. We have made available their summary report and will be making available their file-by-file analysis as soon as we deploy an appropriate database on this website.
