AbstractThis paper describes the Advanced Forensic Format (AFF), which is designed as an alternative to current proprietary disk image formats. AFF offers two significant benefits. First, it is more flexible because it allows extensive metadata to be stored with images. Second, AFF images
consume less disk space than images in other formats (e.g., EnCase images). This paper also describes the Advanced Disk Imager (AImage),a new program for acquiring disk images that compares favorably with existing alternatives.
