This is not a course in how to use X-Ways Forensics if you have not used it before or taken a training course. This is a course in how to use X-Ways Forensics in the most efficient manner in which I go over all the "little" things in X-Ways that make a "big" difference, and as you may be aware some functions are poorly documented (or many not even documented) elsewhere.

The tips and tricks are crammed into a single course that you can watch in a day and refer back as needed.  You will find many tips and tricks (more than 101!) which that save hours over any period of time when using X-Ways Forensics. Some tips you may know, most you probably don't, but certainly some will be that one tip or tips that makes it worthwhile to max out X-Ways.

If you have not taken a course in X-Ways yet, or regularly use it, I highly recommend taking a course in X-Ways before registering for this course as the tips keep coming without letting up or slowing down to explain the basics of X-Ways Forensics.  TYou'll need to know the basics of X-Ways, such as creating a case, creating an image, and be familiar with the general interface of X-Ways.  I recommend that if you need the basics of X-Ways, to take the X-Ways Forensics Practitioner's Guide Online Course as the quickest and least expensive way to learn X-Ways.  http://courses.dfironlinetraining.com/x-ways-forensics-practitioners-guide-online-and-on-demand-course
