What is an EX01 file?

More Information

EX01 files are used in judicial environments to preserve and present digital evidence. The EX01 file is an exact copy of the contents extracted from a subject device's disk and can be mounted and read by EnCase Forensic or another program that supports the EX01 format.

The EX01 format replaced the .E01 format with the release of Encase 7. The new format provides advanced security features such as AES256 encryption with keypairs or passwords, LZ compression, and the option for MD5 or SHA-1 hashing.
