Imaging and RAID functionality are enhanced in the new release: Enjoy the RAID 10 and XFS support as well as HEX and Signature tabs in imaging.
This new hardware unit allows you to image NVMe drives using M.2 SSD extension module at high speeds and avoid shutting the system to replace the drive in the extension module.
The hardware revamp is great news for small forensic labs that have been experiencing higher data volumes within their investigations: DiskSense 2 allows performing 3 imaging sessions in parallel.
The new hardware unit, DiskSense 2 is equipped with server-grade components allows the users of Atola Insight Forensic to triple the throughput of data with maximum reliability of data transfer.
For examiners who need to ensure they are using specific imaging settings for certain types of drives or cases, TaskForce has presets functionality for easy, one-click switching to a specific imaging routine. Presets can be shared with colleagues who use another TaskForce with a simple export/import.
When you need to wipe a bunch of target drives for subsequent imaging sessions or double-check hash values on multiple drives in your archive, multi-launch functionality in TaskForce helps you save time and avoid repeated clicks to complete such multi-drive tasks. This function is currently supported for three single-drive tasks: Hashing, Wiping, Diagnostics.
Looking back at these three years, you notice how fast TaskForce has transformed. From an extremely flexible high-capacity imager with a traditional forensic feature set to an even more productive and innovative tool. TaskForce now offers unique solutions for emerging and long-standing problems of forensic examiners like RAID support and automation.
Atola is pleased to announce the support of AFF4 files in Atola TaskForce, which makes it the second hardware imager able to create AFF4 files after Atola Insight Forensic! Imaging to AFF4 AFF4 is a highly optimized open-source forensic file format with a wide range of benefits: Open-source format: you can describe it in a court Supports multi-pass imaging Fast compression methods: Snappy and LZ4 Block hashes Stores binary zeroes as spans similar to sparse files Vendor-neutral AFF4’s block hashes are calculated for small segments of data on the drive and are stored in a table inside AFF4 metadata and there is a Block map hash that represents a single Read more…
With RAIDs landing on forensic examiners’ desks often being completely anonymous, finding the correct RAID configuration becomes a tedious manual job that can take hours and days to complete. To make this process efficient and effortless, Atola developers equipped TaskForce forensic imager with a breakthrough configuration autodetection module. This time-saving solution automates the configuration search and allows the operator to focus on the more urgent tasks that require human attention. TaskForce Autodetection module TaskForce’s RAID configuration autodetection process commences immediately upon selection of the RAID members, which can be any combination of devices and image files. In Stage 1, the autodetection module reads data on the drives to determine the Read more…
