FileSystem Investigator is a platform independent file system viewer and data extraction tool. It allows the user to:
* View the contents of the target file system in a forensicly safe manner, bypassing the normal operating system mechanisms.
* Extract files and whole directory trees of files from the source filesystem.
Since it is written in platform-neutral Java, it can be used to examine filesystems outside their native environment. For example, it can be used to view a Linux filesystem while running under Windows.
