Autopsy 4
March 15, 2016


Autopsy is a graphical interface to The Sleuth Kit and other open source digital forensics tools. 
Autopsy 3 was a complete rewrite from Autopsy 2 to make it Java-based.
Autopsy 4 improves on Autopsy 3 by supporting collaboration on a single case by multiple users.     

Although Autopsy is designed to be cross-platform (Windows, Linux, MacOSX), the current version is fully functional and fully tested only on Windows. 
We have run it on XP, Vista, and Windows 7 with no problems. 

Autopsy 4 is released under the Apache 2.0 license.
Some libraries Autopsy uses may have different, but similar, open source licenses. 


For a Windows installation, all Autopsy dependencies are bundled with the installer provided.
There is no need for manual installation of additional dependencies if the Windows installer is used.

If you want the Japanese localized version, you must have the Japanese language pack ( installed and the default locale set to JA. (
