Cool update to the XWFIM, Portable Install

Eric is at it again.  This time with a pretty cool update to the X-Ways Forensics Install Manager (v0.0.7.0).  The update to the XWFIM now includes an option to create a portable install to external media.   Page 13 of the Practitioner’s Guide to X-Ways Forensics details how to do this manually, but XWFIM does it for you with a few clicks.

Easy enough

Cool! Notepad++ and Volume Label renamed.

Bam! Done.

 

Another cool little feature is that the XWFIM creates all the case folders for you in the process of the portable install.  Neat.

I like this. Saves a few keystrokes and I’m all about saving keystrokes.

 

Don’t forget, if you liked the Practitioner’s Guide to X-Ways Forensics, write a review on Amazon to let us know how you liked it (or if you didn’t…).  And if you use XWF and didn’t buy the guide…you are missing out on more than a few tips and tricks that will save you dozens of keystrokes.
