Cloud computing technology is being used by thousands of people and companies on a daily basis. From business leaders, who have incorporated this technology in their infrastructure to the simple user of the services that rely on it, this technological in-novation has been celebrated as no other in recent years. Market heterogeneity, has led cloud computing to be distributed to different service models in the buying audi-ence. The most popular among them, is the "Software as Service" model. The combi-nation of both the benefits offered by this technology and its widespread acceptance, makes it increasingly common for it to be used as the means of execution or the tar-get of crime. The investigation of crimes committed in the cloud is a subject of Digital Forensics. This science field is the latest addition to the branch of Forensic Science. However, a cloud forensics investigation has several peculiarities in relation to the other types of crime that this science deals with. The lack of a legal framework around cloud forensics and the integrity of data collected from it, constitute only two of the issues that a forensicator has to cope with. In this master thesis, a complete cloud forensics investigation is performed. In more detail, well known cloud services (Dropbox, Google Drive) belonging to the "Software as a Service" model are being examined, with emphasis on detecting findings resulting from their use in the Win-dows 10 operating system.
