While there are many advantages to using an automated analysis technique over a forensic one, there are some disadvantages too. While analysts can use a forensic tool for their own case, outside of their case, the forensic tool does not work well. An analyst needs to provide the same information in writing as well as on the screen and in different formats. This is a time consuming task that analysts cannot fully dedicate to it. In addition, they will also be required to answer complex questions that come up during investigations in order to understand if the data they gather is reliable or not. These complicated questions can be answered using an automated tool as well and saved for later reference when needed.
