Joint Test Action Group (JTAG) is the common name for what was later standardized as the IEEE 1149.1 Standard Test Access Port and Boundary-Scan Architecture. It was initially devised for testing printed circuit boards using boundary scan and is still widely used for this application. Today JTAG is also widely used for IC debug ports. In the embedded processor market, essentially all modern processors support JTAG when they have enough pins. Embedded systems development relies on debuggers talking to chips with JTAG to perform operations like single stepping and breakpointing. Digital electronics products such as cell phones or a wireless access point generally have no other debug or test interfaces.

JTAG forensics is an acquisition procedure which involves connecting to the Standard Test Access Port (TAPs) on a device and instructing the processor to transfer the raw data stored on connected memory chips. Jtagging supported phones can be an extremely effective technique to extract a full physical image from devices that cannot be acquired by other means.

File Structure

File systems are covered separately.

SSD

Per MS KB2727880, when Windows 7 is installed on a system with an SSD drive, automatic defragmentation and SuperFetch/prefetching are disabled.

Further, this TechNet post states: Since ReadyBoost will not provide a performance gain when the primary disk is an SSD, Windows 7 disables ReadyBoost when reading from an SSD drive.



Jump Lists

Jump Lists are Task Bar artifacts first introduced on Windows 7 (and also available on Windows 8).

Registry

The Windows_Registry remains a central component of the Windows 7 operating system.
