Hard drives forensic examiners tackle may be as little as 20 gigabytes, or some newer drives are 250 gigabytes, even up to 750 gigabytes.
Computer forensic examiners, using special computer forensic software, first acquire an image of the target media, then do an analysis.
A lot of the evidence you seek will not be visible to the untrained eye. You won’t find it in a Word document by using Windows Explorer, or by starting a program from a shortcut on the desktop.
