File Investigator Tools 3.23 | File size: 4.4 MB
File Investigator Tools - reliable, fast, and accurate computer forensic tools. We've merged our File Investigator technology with Windows File Find and the DOS Directory command, to search for files by their File Type, Contents, Operating System/Platform, Data Storage Method, File Attributes, plus more. Forget using file extensions, now you can search for files intelligently and browse through their metadata.
File Investigator TOOLS (FI TOOLS) includes both FI File Find and FI Directory applications, which identify more file types with higher accuracy than any other product available. Imagine searching for files by categories rather than having to specify file extensions or a few file types. You can do that now, from Windows and from the command line. Visit the FI File Find page to see how easy it is to search by categories like Graphic Images, Personal/User Data, Spreadsheets, Digital Audio and Palm OS related files. Or, visit the FI Directory page to see how you can perform the same operations directly from the command line or batch files.
All of these features may also be added to your own product(s), with the File Investigator OEM API Kit.

Added the ability to display, and filter with, base/parent file format types
in FI TOOLS.
An example is #2208 "MS Word 2007-2010 Document (Open XML)" uses the base
file type #2207 "MS Office Data (Open XML) (General)". This feature has been
available to API licensees for a few years, but is now being made available to
FI TOOLS owners.
FI Directory for Windows Examples:
>fiwdir.exe /LO Displays a list of columns available.
>fiwdir.exe *.* /V113=6 Includes the Parent Index column when displaying files.
>fiwdir.exe *.* /FB2207 Filters out all file types that don't have Type #2207
