Download Accelerator Plus (DAP) is one of the most popular download managers  due to its free availability, download speed and versatility. This software records download activities across multiple files which include history, registry, RAM, swap and temporary files. This paper analyzes a) the log files (with .DAT extension), b) windows registry entries, and c) RAM and swap files from forensic view point. We also look at tools and techniques for extracting evidence. This research work describes a number of traces left behind after the use of DAP such as install location, download path, downloaded files and menu extensions to name a few, enabling digital investigators to search and interpret download activities. Moreover the study is supported by a tool, DAP Forensic Artefact Colletor (DAPFAC), that assists forensic examiners by providing valuable information which is retrieved from the windows registry and history files on the basis of analysis performed. The widespread use of DAP makes this analysis, an attractive option, ranging from law enforcement agencies to employees monitoring manager.
