Helpie FAQ

  • CAN YOU DETECT TAMPERING ON AN EVIDENCE COPY?

    Yes. Our tools provide several levels of tamper detection by looking at the container of a digital media evidence recording, as well as the audio, video and image data streams.  

  • CAN YOU RECOVER DELETED AUDIO OR VIDEO RECORDINGS?

    The success of our recovery services is dependent on file retention periods and the size of the storage device. In many cases we have recovered deleted audio and video files for litigation use. 

  • I TESTED MY IMAGES USING FORENSICS ONLINE. ARE YOUR SERVICES MORE ACCURATE?

    Yes. Primeau Forensics' tools combined with our forensic training provide more accurate results. This is due to an understanding of the widely accepted scientific methodology.
