ADF digital forensic software comes with approximately a dozen out-of-the-box default search profiles designed to make it quick and easy for non-technical field investigators to quickly search for digital evidence.
In this short "How To" video, ADF's Digital Forensic Specialist, Rich Frawley shows you how you can hide default search profiles from view. Examiners or Task Force team leaders may want to hid profiles if you don't plan to use them or if you have a requirement to use only specific digital forensic search profiles.
In this example we are going to hide the “Quick - Child Exploitation Search Profile. To hide a Default Search Profile the config.json file must be edited. This is located by default at
“\Users\<User Account>\AppData\Local\ADF Solutions Inc\ADF Digital Evidence Investigator\config.json”.
Open the JSON file in an editor of your choice (notepad will suffice). Scroll to the “Display Default Search Profiles” section and change the “show” value to “false” of the Search Profile to hide it. To display hidden Default Search Profiles change the “show” value from “false” to “true”.
