The enhancement and proliferation of information and communication technology (ICT) has tackled every aspect of human activity: work, leisure, sport, communication, medicine, etc. All around us we can see mobile phones and other connected devices that are now ubiquitous, changing trends in consumer behaviour. Therefore, there is no surprise in fact that such technologies can play a significant role in committing or assisting a crime, since data held on digital devices can give a detailed insight into people’s lives, communications, contacts, friends, family and acquaintances. In order to help law enforcement investigation of such crimes, digital forensic is performed with the aim of collecting crime-related evidence from various digital media and analyse it. Investigators use various forensic techniques to search hidden folders, retrieve deleted data, decrypt the data or restore damaged files, etc. Obtaining evidence such as location data, photos, messages or internet searches can be b...eneficial, if not crucial, in assisting the police with criminal investigations. Since advances in technologies have led to an increase in the volume, variety, velocity, and veracity of data available for digital forensic analysis, without efficient techniques and tools such investigation would require a tremendous amount of effort and time. That is the reason for expansion in the market of digital forensic tools, both proprietary and free for use, that are available today. In this paper an insight of digital forensic process is given, emphasizing the role of digital forensic tools in providing digital evidence. The possibility of one particular tool, Belkasoft Evidence Center – BEC, in acquisition and analysis of digital evidence was briefly described.
