    “Exactly what we were looking for!”

    After testing several USB forensic tools, all of which were inadequate in some area, I discovered USB Detective. This tool turned out to be exactly what we were looking for. It’s fast, accurate and has great detailed reporting options. I really like the timestamp consistency levels. It’s by far one of the best USB forensic tools available. I highly recommend.
