Network data capture is another potential source of information which will form part of the scope to determine what data is present within the network traffic from a host PC. Preparation To gather the data required to answer the research questions in relation to the use of SkyDrive, a variety of virtual machines (VMs) were created. It was decided to examine a variety of circumstances of a user accessing SkyDrive and also to examine any differences when using different browsers. Multiple scenarios were explored, each making use of SkyDrive with the following browsers: Internet Explorer (IE), Mozilla Firefox (FF), Google Chrome (GC), and Apple Safari (AS).
