    This article works on determining the effect of operating systems on Computer forensic especially in nowadays that the need for Computer forensic is increasing due to the increase in cybercrimes. Suited to the purpose of the study and methods of interview, 15 people with minimum of 4 years of experience in informatics have been interviewed, in addition, the reports of court experts from cases which are continuing in Ankara administration of Justice and domestic and foreign sources have been analyzed technically. With the outcome of the analysis, it has been observed that the studies and investigations are prepared according to an operating system, software or a certain device because of the commercial concerns or habits, for this reason it appears that it would be helpful to make an academic study in; sessions, workshops, seminars about gathering electronic evidences. Article studies the identification of differences and similarities between the operating systems and its effects on forensic studies with 5 headings and subheadings. According to the study, non-existence of a standard Computer forensic process and the need for different specialties are discovered, for this reason it is assessed that the Computer forensic experts need to specialize in sub-specializations especially related to operating systems.
