OVERVIEW

Autopsy is a graphical interface to The Sleuth Kit and other open source digital forensics tools. 
Autopsy 3 is a complete rewrite from Autopsy 2 and it is now Java-based.     

Although Autopsy is designed to be cross-platform (Windows, Linux, MacOSX), the current version is fully functional and fully tested only on Windows. 
We have run it on XP, Vista, and Windows 7 with no problems. 

Autopsy 3.0 is released under the Apache 2.0 license. 


INSTALLATION

All Autopsy dependencies are bundled with the installer provided.
There is no need for manual installation of additional dependencies if the installer is used.

If you want the Japanese localized version, you must have the Japanese language pack (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/972813) installed and the default locale set to JA. (http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/change-system-locale#1TC=windows-7).

Refer to the next section for additional info on third-party software requirements to run Autopsy without installer.

Refer to the KNOWN_ISSUES.txt file for known bugs that could cause investigation problems. 


SUPPORT

There is a built-in help system in Autopsy once you get it started.  There is also a QuickStart Guide that came with the installer.

Send any bug reports or feature requests to the sleuthkit-users e-mail list.
