    Final Release and Cost

    I really like OSForensics as well as some of the other tools you offer. Do you have any idea of the planned final release date as well as what type of pricing structure will be offered? I have been using Helix for years but now that Access Data has purchased e-fense they are not going to continue with the project and there are a lot of use looking for a replacement down the road. OSForensics has a lot to offer.

    I am looking at some of you other products and such as OSFMount, OSFClone, and ImageUSB. I have been doing some playing around with the applications and have created the OSFClone on my USB drive then after that was complete I then made a directory for OSForensics, this way I have the tools with me that I need when responding to an incident, I can either boot off the drive to image or it the system is running I can then just run OSForensics to get the live data. The less I need to carry the better when traveling by air.

    Keep up the great work and I look forward to any updates to the product line.

      There will be another beta release next week. It will fix up some performance and functionality bugs with the internal viewer, add more information to the recent activity dump, and fix up a few other bugs.

      We are still working on some major new functionality including automated data caving, a raw sector viewer and maybe some password cracking functions.

      Plus we really need to get it into the hands of more people for testing.

      So the V1 release is at least a few months away yet.

      Pricing is also up in the air. There will be some type of free option (this is might be just keeping the final beta as a free release, or it might be a long free trial of the full software).

      Pricing for the full package will be well under $900 / license. But above $100 / license. Big range I know.

      I might start a new thread on pricing.
