RAID imaging with Atola TaskForce
Atola TaskForce

RAID imaging made easy with TaskForce 

In summer 2020, Atola released a groundbreaking RAID functionality in TaskForce to identify, reassemble and image arrays in a fast and forensically sound manner. It made TaskForce the only hardware RAID imager in the world.  Nearly two years and a few firmware updates later, TaskForce is a 3-in-1 solution that: automatically identifies the RAID type and configuration; images the array or its specific parts (partition, folder or file level) at high speed; automatically rebuilds data in arrays with redundancy (1, 5, 10) and recovers data from damaged RAID members. The most recent releases supplemented the existing features set with more RAID types and file systems, enhanced configuration search algorithms and Read more…

When TaskForce’s integration into your automation solution is a game changer

When it comes to multi-stage investigative routines that are regularly applied to evidence drives coming into a lab, automation is king. It allows creating workflows and setting up particular procedures so that a sequence of multiple tasks is launched with a single click and demands no further control by the operator.  The key benefits of automation are:  Saves an investigator’s time: Automation allows users to focus on the parts of their jobs that require human attention, while entrusting routine tasks to a fine-tuned system.  Reduces processing time: There is no or minimal downtime between the different stages of acquisition and analysis. Streamlines the process and eliminates human error: When you Read more…

RAID 10 configuration autodetection and imaging

TaskForce’s RAID functionality has been around for over a year now. Our users have experienced great improvement in their process. RAID 10 imaging is the most recent addition. RAID 10 is among the most popular RAID types and combines striping and mirroring techniques. This ensures both high performance and data resiliency. A RAID 10 usually consists of an even set of drives, unless three mirrors are used for extra data redundancy. In September, TaskForce received its 2021.8 firmware update that included RAID 10 support. From now on, our configuration autodetection module helps in case you are dealing with a RAID 10. Even if the type and configuration of the RAID Read more…
