The company’s flagship product is '''Belkasoft Evidence Center''', an all-in-one solution for searching, analysing, managing and sharing digital evidence discovered on suspects’ hard drives and RAM. Supported types of evidence include information found in instant messenger logs, internet browser histories, mailboxes of popular email clients, social network remnants, peer-to-peer data, multi-player game chats, office documents, pictures, videos, encrypted files, mobile backups and system files. Belkasoft Evidence Center is available in four major editions: Chat Analyzer, Chat & Social Analyzer, Professional, and Ultimate. The fifth Enterprise edition brings in centralized evidence processing with server-based operation and user-level permission management. A Portable edition requiring no installation and running off a USB pen drive is also available.

\\.\pmem

Note that running dd directly on this device file can crash the machine.

Use the winpmem.exe tool instead because it handles protected memory regions.

+
To read and acquire the physical memory and write it to image.raw:

<pre>

winpmem.exe image.raw
