BitCurator is a toolkit for digital forensics, archiving, and digital curation. It assembles best-of-breed open source tools for data triage, forensic disk imaging, file system analysis, location of PII (private and individually identifying information), and export of metadata. Libraries and archives can use this toolkit to support an ingestion workflow for new digital content. BitCurator also includes tools for rescuing data from failing media and can be used for data recovery. A detailed walk-through of BitCurator's functionality can be located in the quickstart guide under the support menu. Under the "use cases" category, users will find real-world examples of how BitCurator has been used in practice. BitCurator is distributed either as a bootable CD image or as a VirtualBox machine image. It can run with as little as 4G of memory, but for data-intensive tasks, the BitCurator team recommends at least an Intel Core i7 or AMD Ryzen 1700, and at least 16G of memory.
