One SATA-2 connection and one USB 3.0 connection are available for the "Evidence 1" drive position.The unit also includes one IDE adapter. One SATA-2 connection and one USB 2.0 connection are available for the "Evidence 2" drive position. Optional Adapters are available for 1.8", 2.5", ZIF, and micro SATA interfacse including adapters for Flash media such as compact flash, memory sticks, SD, micro SD, multi media card, etc. SCSI drives can be acquired utilizing 3rd party usb to scsi adapters. Support copying data between different drive interfaces such as copying from an IDE "suspect" drive to a SATA "evidence" drive. The "suspect" port is write-protected by default to prevent any accidental changes to the "suspect" drive's data.

Operational Modes: One-to-One copy mode - captures one "suspect" drive to one "evidence" drive (1:1). Multi-copy mode - captures "suspect" drive up to two "evidence" drives (1:2) Multiple Image Storage - Store multiple "suspect" drive images using a single "evidence" drive. Sanitize drives using Single Pass, DOD Standard, or secure erase. Hardware accelerated SHA-1 and SHA-2 hashing functions. Standard MD-5 hashing also included. Upload "suspect" images to a shared network storage location using the native 1 Gigabit ethernet interface.

Multiple Imaging Formats: Single capture: creates "mirror" image of suspect's drive. Linux DD: supports storing single or multiple DD images (industry standard) on a single "evidence" hard drive or USB storage device. User can define the size of the linux DD image segments.

"On the Fly" Data Encryption: Built-in AES 256 encryption technology encrypts with minimal speed degredation all digital data during the acquisition process for the purpose of safe-gaurding sensitive information.

Image Restore: Restore a proviously capturd DD to a EO1 image to the original "source" drive format.

Preview Source Data: Preview source drive's data utilizing third party applications or using the unit's built-in O/S utilities. The unit's preview capability allows previewing Word, Excel, PDF, text or multimedia (pictures, video and audio) files prior to cloning the data.
