Abstract: -In the day to day life, the crime is becoming a big issue in the computer field. So to avoid and to protect from crime, Computer Forensics is used. This paper describes different tools that are used in the Computer Forensics. These tools are used to recover the data that is lost (ex., Hard disks).The universal truth says that the coin has two sides where as the technology also has both good and bad. We need to protect the technology by minimizing the impact of threat.
