We have just released version 4.11 of Atola Insight Forensic software. This edition includes APFS support in Imaging, File Recovery and Diagnostics, as well as extended Artifact search functionality and other great features!


Atola Insight now supports logical imaging of APFS partitions. To start the imaging, select All sectors with data in imaging settings and click Start imaging.

Image the data

Once the imaging is done, you can see the partition and file structure on the target:

  1. Go to File Recovery category in the left-side menu
  2. Click the partition you want to have a closer look at. Should it be encrypted, unlock it with a known password or recovery key.

Unlock the drive

Inside the partitions, look through the directories’ structure and select the files you want to recover.

Open the partitions

Artifact Finder

Now you can search artifacts on a drive not only in the course of imaging, but as a separate operation, both on sources and targets.

Go to Artifacts Finder in the left-side menu. You will now see if any artifacts have previously been looked for. If you want to make an additional search, select the artifacts you are interested in, and click Start button.

Start artifact search

As the Artifact Finder is still running, you can look at the progress in the Artifacts tab below the progress bar and click the diagram to see the list of found artifacts. If you only want to look at a certain category, click it in the list next to the diagram.

Click a category

To find a specific artifact, use the search bar and filter the results.

Click an artifact in the list to see the sector in which it is located.

Select an artifact

It allows you to see the context, in which this artifact is placed.
