World’s fastest forensic imager
Insight Forensic 4.2 got a great speed-up for imaging and other operations even being run on weak laptops. See our latest benchmark published in the blog.
Image files on target devices
Image files can now be created on exFat-formatted Target hard drives. The specific exFat-formatting with large cluster size is necessary for receiving good performance during imaging process.
So now you can take a big HDD, attach it to DiskSense unit and create as many image files as drive capacity allows. This is how image file on target can be created in Insight Forensic 4.2.
This is how Imaging source SSD to image file located on a target drive looks like.
