NetScanTools Pro Protected Storage Viewer Tool Description

The Protected Storage Viewer is one of the utilities launched from within the Cache Forensics tool. This tool allows you to view items saved in the Protected Storage area of the registry which was used primarily in older operating systems - much less so in Windows 10. Typical things you will see are Microsoft Internet Explorer autocomplete fields, Microsoft Outlook/Outlook Express account information including servers, account names and passwords. You will see things people consider private information that was entered into IE autocomplete fields like birthdates, email addresses, SSN, full names, addresses, etc. It shows whatever the user of the machine entered.

Special Note: this tool views the contents of the Protected Storage area of the active registry for the system the program is running on. This information is different for each user account on the system. It does not view non-active registry files from other computers.
