Question Description

I need support with this Computer Science question so I can learn better.

In this assignment, you assume the role of a forensic investigator for the DigiFirm Investigation Company. One of your clients is a small music production company. One day you receive a phone call from Andrea, the owner and president of the music company.

Andrea believes one of her employees, a sound technician, has been stealing intellectual property from the company. She thinks he is copying original music scores and then selling them to upstart musicians, claiming that he wrote them. Andrea checked the employee’s computer the previous night and thinks he has been deleting the files to cover his tracks.

Andrea’s employee uses a Macintosh computer. There are several tools available for recovering files that have been deleted from a Mac, including:

Although all these tools accomplish the same goal, each has one or more unique features. You should consider the full capability set of each tool when gathering information and determine which tool would be the best choice for the scenario in this assignment.

You will research three tools that can aid in recovering deleted Macintosh files and write a paper about their capabilities. You must also recommend one product for use in this case and justify your recommendation.


For this assignment, you are to:

  • Research three tools that can aid in recovering deleted Macintosh files, compare their capabilities, and write a professional report in which you recommend one product for use in this case, justifying your recommendation.
  • Your report will be 4-5 pages in length. Your report must adhere to Saudi Electronic University academic writing standards and APA style guidelines, citing references as appropriate.

Macintosh Forensics

Some challenges are encountered when trying to process Mac OS X 10.2-10.5
systems. The significant problem that is presented with the Mac to the forensic examiners is
due to a lack of regular exposure to the Macintosh systems (Kans, 2020). This becomes a
challenge for digital forensics examiners to become easy to provide the needed interpretation
of useful information on these systems. In the incident presented regarding the possible
intelligent theft that was conducted as a small music production company, there is a need to
pick on the right tool that can be used to recover the files that can be used from Mac.
Selecting the best tool for recovery of data will provide the needed assistance to retrieve the
Macintosh computer.
Recovery tools possible for recovering files
Mac Keeper Files Recovery
Data loss happens frequently, but by using the Mac keeper Files Recovery, it is
possible (Kans, 2020). Data loss can occur as a result of hardware failures that may
accidentally format the volume of the drive or from software corruption, intentional deletion
of the files, and viruses. Mac Data Recovery can perform against hardware failure, accidental
