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.
SMART table is a valuable source of information about a hard drive’s health. SMART (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) provides stats of a drive’s operation, thus helping predict its future failure.
Every once in a while forensic examiners come across hard drives that get shorted. In most cases, a drive has become shorted after experiencing overvoltage either due to a power supply failure or as a result of a user error. Here is what happens to drive in these scenarios and how to fix this.
In TaskForce, Jumbo frames are activated by default to ensure maximum data transfer rates when imaging to a file on your server.
