What is computer forensics?

Computer forensics is a branch of forensic science that focuses on the investigation and recovery of data found in computers — particularly in digital crime. Flashback Data specializes in the investigation of computers, which is different than digital forensics, which encompasses all forms of devices that can store digital data.

Our processes involve collecting activity on computers and equipment to transport to our lab. We store the original data to prevent cross-contamination, then examine the device to determine the correct extraction method to find relevant information for the investigation.


Our experts can conduct forensic acquisition, recovery, and production of data of interest from computers for individuals, corporations, law firms, and law enforcement involved in current or potential litigations. Our user-friendly reports give clients easy access to the information they need for court and other legal proceedings.

How can you help my case?

Flashback Data performs investigations on many types of cases. Civil and Criminal. We have worked with Attorneys on corporate IP Theft cases, family law matters, hacking incidents and more. We also assist Law Enforcement with criminal cases.

Expert Witness & Testimony

We have experts with experience in technology, intelligence, and law enforcement. With our background in these departments, we can arrange expert witness testimonies to accompany the data recovery and evidence we find. We are also skilled at creating affidavits and reports.

Forensic Data Recovery

When normal forensic tools cannot retrieve data, we have a full-service data recovery lab that can perform data recovery on damaged or challenging devices. We have the ability to do these recoveries without sending the device to another location and breaking chain-of-custody. This works on crashed hard drives, broken mobile phones, damaged memory sticks, nonworking servers, and backup legacy tapes.

Evidence Collection & Preservation

At Flashback Data, we use techniques that are write-protected and are verifiable with complex hash algorithms. We also enforce strict chain-of-custody protocol to ensure all evidence is accountable. Devices that we can perform data recovery on include email servers, desktop computers, laptops, mobile devices, backup devices, and network shares. Our facility can accommodate any size request.

If the device is not accessible, can you do still do something with it?

This is exactly what makes Flashback Data unique. We have a full fledged Data Recovery lab on site to assist with any issues with inaccessible devices. This is especially helpful in cases where someone intentionally damaged a device.
