Computer Forensics - Hard DriveComputer Forensics NZ Ltd have been providing forensic data recovery and forensic computer investigation services since 1999.

We offer a wide range of forensic IT services, including forensic file recovery and computer evidence collection and preservation. Whether you need a seized computer evidence recovery specialist or someone to lead a computer forensics investigation, we’re here to help.

Computer forensics has become a vital business tool for a growing number of companies. Computer data forensics is used to get evidence of illegal and inappropriate use of company computers including data theft and is also used in many types of HR proceedings, including sexual harassment, discrimination, and wrongful termination claims.

Evidence can be found in email systems, on network servers, and on employee’s computers. However, computer data can be easily manipulated and it is essential that the data search and analysis is performed by a trained and experienced computer forensics specialist to ensure the evidence stands up in court.

In addition, we recover data from commercial video and audio systems.

We have a proven track record in computer forensics throughout New Zealand since 1999. We have retrieved computer evidence from all forms of electronic storage media such as computer hard disk drives, CDs and DVDs, portable flash memory and RAID arrays.
