The increasing number of digital crime cases that occured makes digital forensics becoming one of the most popular terms. Digital forensics techniques are performed by doing some analytical processes on digital or mobile devices to extract digital evidences. In the process of digital evidence extraction, forensic software with good features is needed so that the software is able to search and extract digital evidence with detailed results. To determine the type of software that has the best features and ability, a comparative analysis needs to be done on some forensic softwares. This research focuses on the comparison analysis of 6 forensic softwares which is commonly used: Oxygen Forensic Suite, Andriller, MOBILedit Forensic Express, Autopsy 4.1.1, Magnet AXIOM, and Belkasoft Evidence Center. The result shows that Belkasoft Evidence Center has the highest index number, Oxygen Forensic Suite has superiority in obtaining BBM artifact, and MOBILedit Forensic Express has the advantage on data preservation and physical evidence cloning.
