Anybody who's working with Encase knows it's process indicator isn't accurate. You never know how long a process (acquire, verify etc.) wil take. The free Process Monitor of systinternals.com solves this problem.
How does it work
Download the free tool, unzip it and store procmon.exe in the c:\Windows\sytem32 folder
Next time you start to work with Encase, open a dosbox and type "procmon.exe". Process Monitor will now start.
Now add the following details:
Process name is Encase.exe then Include
Click Add and OK
Now, you can exactly see the processes of Encase.
