Hi all,

Thanks for the comments!

So, I assumed that because I wasn't seeing any records in pslist or psxview
that I was accessing the image wrong.
However, I mounted via FTK and then took an MD5 of Z:\unallocated space and
compared with the MD5 of the raw image made by converting the E01 using FTK
Imager: the MD5s were the same.

The imageinfo and kdbgscan plugins do return sensible data.

The image was made on Win7SP1x64 using winen64.exe from EnCase7.

Interestingly, I've just tried taking an image of a Win7SP1x64 VMware VM
using winen64.exe and I get exactly the same issue.
Hmm... will do some more testing and report back.

Thanks again,
