I observed mainly three files in the Pen drive image that was detained from house of the suspect. The files were covered using uncomplicated methods such as removing files (in one of the case), changing the File Allocation Table (FAT) and the main entries of the directory, and also by altering the name in the file. The three files are: 1) a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, 2) a Microsoft Word document, and 3) a JPEG image file.

The Microsoft Excel file was encrypted and compressed with a Winrar ZIP program, however luckily it was easy to find out the password from the image of the floppy disk image. These three significant files are supposed to give the Police Department the knowledge that they need to have a strong case in opposition to the guilty and his probable assistants.
