Abstract: This paper reviews the usability of the Autopsy Forensic Browser. Two expert-based usability review techniques are used: Cognitive Walkthrough and Heuristic Evaluation. The results of the evaluation indicate that there are many areas where usability could be improved and these are classified into areas of eight overlapping areas. Examples from each area are presented, with suggestions as to methods to alleviate them. The paper concludes with a future work proposal to effect the changes suggested and retest the current and the replacement system with a user-based evaluation.
