The Forensic Toolkit Imager (FTK Imager) is a commercial forensic imaging software package distributed by AccessData.

FTK Imager supports storage of disk images in EnCase's or SMART's file format, as well as in raw (dd) format. With Isobuster technology built in, FTK Imager Images CD's to a ISO/CUE file combination. This also includes multi and open session CDs.


  • Important: when using FTK Imager to create a forensic image of a suspect's hard drive, make sure you are using a hardware-based write blocking device. This ensures that your operating system does not alter the suspect's hard drive when you attach the drive to your computer.
