Unique data extraction
Besides the general data usually extracted, Oxygen Forensic Suite 2 can extract a lot of unique information:
- contacts (last date of contact modification, contacts photos, field labels, contact groups and speed dials)
- calendar events (last date of event modification, all event dates, alarm status, recurrences)
- messages (e-mails and MMS, messages from custom folders, message SMSC time stamp)
- log records (GPRS, EDGE, CSD, HSCSD and Wi-Fi session traffic and time, deleted SMS details)
- files (file system from phone memory and flash card)
