Guidance Software releases Encase 7.04 and Portable 3.1.2

EnCase 7.04 has been released.

A few of the updates:
New automatic case backup feature has been added.  It allows you to backup all or some of your cases as a scheduled backup.

Enhancement to the "file carver" has been added.  Now the "file carver" automatically checks file headers for file length information to better ascertain the length of the file.  This will hopefully cut down on extra data being carved out for certain files.

It is now a bit easier to create templates for reporting.

EnCase has added iOS 5.0 and 5.1 iPhone and iPad device support.

More password integration with Passware.


EnCase Portable 3.1.2 has also been released.
