FI File Find Options Dialog

Reliable, fast, and accurate computer forensic tools.
The File Find tab (click the image to enlarge) shows the File Investigator File Find options related to the user interface. You can change everything from where FI File Find icons/shortcuts will appear, to the columns that are used and the Fall Back Previewer as a default for files types that don't have their own. A couple recent additions are the Left and Right Double Click Commands. These fields allow you to specify what happens when you double click your left or right mouse button on a file. For example, entering NOTEPAD.EXE in one of these fields will cause that mouse double click to open the file with MS Notepad. If the Left Double Click field is left empty, then the MS Windows Registry associated context menu Open command is used.

The Advanced tab (click the image to enlarge) provides the flexibility to select the Identification Stages used, Hash Codes & Checksums calculated as well as how deep the analysis is allowed to venture into each file. You can decide on your own balance between powerful in-depth searches that use a great amount of processing power, and faster more time efficient searches that use a subset of the available features. The default settings exclude the calculating of hash values, as well as the secondary Identification Stages, in order to ensure good performance across all generations of processors and computer clock speeds.
