Ok, it took a while to get this done, mostly because of other projects. But it is done. I have videos of most build methods, tips and tricks, pro’s and con’s, and aspects of WinFE that you may find important. I also included every bit of downloadable swag in the course too (batch files, wallpaper, scripts, etc…).
All in all, this is probably the best source of WinFE you will find. I encourage you to share it and use it, after all, this is a free tool. If anyone has suggestions on making the course better, let me know and I can try to squeeze in some improvements.
On another note, I am also releasing the first of several X-Ways Forensics online courses on Monday, June 30, 2014. I’ll send out a reminder on June 30 through twitter and the XWF blog. The XWF online course is not free like the WinFE course, but it is also not expensive. From Monday, the X-Ways course will be $195 but I will publish a discount code good for two weeks (through July 14) for 25% off.
The WinFE course was lots of work, but certainly worth the time to watch. The X-Ways course is something else entirely. The manner in which I made the X-Ways course is so that you can follow along with XWF in learning how to work a case with X-Ways Forensics. The course describes the options and buttons in XWF, but also shows how to simply work a case. There are literally so many features in X-Ways, that without training, you will be missing about 50% of what you should be doing. I found that even the most current version of the X-Ways manual does not list features in XWF…lots of information to keep up with, tons of features to consider, easy to miss something that you should not miss for such a powerful forensic tool.
