replacement for rifiuti, a MS Windows recycle bin analysis tool


Rifiuti2 analyses recycle bin files from Windows. Analysis of Windows recycle bin is usually carried out during Windows computer forensics.

Rifiuti2 can extract file deletion time, original path and size of deleted files and whether the deleted files have been moved out from the recycle bin since they are trashed.

Rifiuti2 is a rewrite of rifiuti, which is originally written for identical purpose. Then it was extended to cover more functionalities, such as:

  * Handles recycle bin up to Windows 10;
  * Handles ancient Windows like 95, NT4 and ME;
  * Supports all localized versions of Windows - both Unicode-based ones
    and legacy ones (using ANSI code page);
  * Supports output in XML format as well as original tab-delimited text.

Rifiuti2 is designed to be portable and runs on command line environment. Two programs rifiuti and rifiuti-vista are chosen depending on relevant Windows recycle bin format.
