Cell Site Analysis (CSA) is the technical discipline of using mobile telephony signals and network data to triangulate and identify the relative geographic position of a device.
Windows has included the Volume Shadow Copy Service in it's releases since Windows XP.  The Shadow Copy Service creates differential backups periodically to create restore points for the user. Windows 7 Professional and Ultimate editions include tools to work with and manage the Volume Shadow Copy Service, including the ability to [[mount shadow volumes on disk images]].

Cell site analysis is considered a highly intrusive surveillance technique and as such normally deployed only in sensitive or serious criminal investigations.

The technique can assist in demonstrating the co-location (meeting) of individuals, their movements over time, proximity to a scene of crime, and to verify the any defence alibi evidence.

Cell Site Analysis (CSA) is the technical discipline of using mobile telephony signals and network data to triangulate and identify the relative geographic position of a device.

Cell site analysis is considered a highly intrusive surveillance technique and as such normally deployed only in sensitive or serious criminal investigations.

The technique can assist in demonstrating the co-location (meeting) of individuals, their movements over time, proximity to a scene of crime, and to verify the any defence alibi evidence.
