Abstract: The capacity of digital storage media is growing at a phenomenal rate, leading to an increase in the overall time it takes to process a typical digital forensics investigation. Conventional tools and techniques simply do not cater for the size of potential evidence that investigators have to analyse. With digital evidence being available on an increasing number of digital media types, ranging from portable media players, to Global Positioning System (GPS) devices, to rack-mountable servers, in addition to the fact that there is a rising trend for digitizing information in the business world, the problem is only getting worse. This paper endeavours to initiate an investigation into the current solutions put forth to solve computer forensic investigations of large storage media for the purpose of stimulating ideas and encouraging expansion of current solutions within the research community.
