This paper discusses the cloud computing data storage and the impact of metadata tagging as a potential method for tracking original file information. We focus on demonstrating current digital forensic methods and approaches with regard to their applicability in cloud computing. In particular, we explore works discussing cloud computing in relation to digital forensics for disaster management cases. We propose possible solutions for tackling problems posed to the forensic examiner trying to analyze exchangeable image file formats of the filename extension of jpg for images that have been stored within the cloud to identify file information for a disaster management emergency situation.
