Historical verification of Moore’s Law, fifty three years after its initial wording in 1965, has indubitably been accomplished by modern digital technology. Devices with outstanding specifications and performance are now affordable to such an extent that they are considered indissolubly interlinked with modern era lifestyle. The capabilities these devices can offer are countless and amongst them, inevitable is their use in criminal activities. On account of this misuse the field of Digital Forensics was born and is rapidly evolving over the last years with goal, amongst others, the examination of digital media, the analysis of digital trails, the discovery of valuable evidence and the critical contribution to crime fighting and Law preservation. As technology is evolving so are malicious crime methods and the Digital Forensic Science. A legality conflict has begun and in the essence of this conflict, indispensable pillar for its successful outcome, there lays knowledge. Knowledge for both Digital Forensics’ fundamental principles and its miscellaneous scope. The basic principles of Digital Forensics are explicitly defined and must be applied diligently, while its scope’s magnitude is huge with many different layers. Computational Systems’ File Systems comprise one of these deeper layers that can be analyzed scientifically in the field of Digital forensics. Salient File System on the field, among many, is the NTFS File System, a modern, efficient and robust System with complex safety and redundancy infrastructures. Distinctive features that not only did they establish NTFS as one of the most commercial and long lasting File Systems but in addition rendered it the most widely used worldwide. Aspects that undeniably transfuse NTFS a high importance role in the field of Digital Forensics and thus a substantive and deep knowledge of them is considered imperative for the final prevalence of security and Legality.
