This paper presents a novel method for systematizing the investigation of digital information, seeking to accelerate criminal investigations in which a computer was used in an incidental manner; i. e., when a computer was used only to store electronic documents possibly related to the crime (similar to a physical filing cabinet that would contain documents, annotations, photos, etc.). It can also be used in criminal investigations where it was not possible to determine, at a glance, from the seized data storage items, which one(s) would have had a direct role as corpus delicti or were instrumental to the crime. The method also presents a digital document selection mechanism that enables an investigator to choose, between the seized items, the one(s) that might have something related to what is being investigated. Its main features and benefits include: give investigators quick access to digital data; reduces or eliminates the need for the forensic expert to know details and hypotheses of the investigations; capacity to processes big volumes of data and no need to discard information that appears irrelevant, since it might be important to another investigator at future time.
