CFReDS Data Set Documentation

The degree of documentation required for a data set varies depending on the use of the data set. For example, a data set for testing string searching requires absolute disk addresses for strings located in unallocated space, but an investigation scenario data set may only need to say that the file at C:\mystuff\social-security-numbers.txt contains the information to be found.
