As of today, TaskForce - the fastest multitasking tool in the forensic market - is reinforced with Express mode for self-launching imaging. When the mode is activated, every imaging session starts automatically upon plugging source drive into TaskForce.
The unit can process up to 17 imaging sessions in Express mode on the Source ports, of which:
When activated, Express mode controls all Source ports, leaving Target ones available for other tasks.
Source evidence drives can be imaged to E01/RAW files, located on a network server. To enhance data transfer rates, TaskForce is equipped with two 10 Gb Ethernet ports.
Atola team recommends enabling autostart of diagnostics before imaging. A fully-automated diagnostics module checks all drive systems: hard drive’s motor and electronics (PCB), head stack, media surface, all firmware/system areas, partitions, and file systems. Diagnostics provides the following advantages
Once connected, source devices get diagnosed, TaskForce launches individual imaging sessions automatically.
Alternatively, you can enable imaging good drives only by choosing Start imaging only if diagnostics has no issues setting.
Pausing self-launch imaging - in case a damaged drive detected - is the most useful feature. It enables you to decide whether to start imaging or not.
