Imaging presets

For examiners who need to ensure they are using specific imaging settings for certain types of drives or cases, TaskForce allows creating different presets for easy, one-click switching to a specific imaging routine. Presets also allow these specific imaging settings to be shared with colleagues who use another TaskForce by exporting presets from one device and importing them onto another one.

TaskForce has two presets called Default and Damaged recommended for healthy and faulty drives respectively.

Once you have saved a preset, they are stored in TaskForce's work folder and can be used by other operators using the same imager. They can find the presets you created under the Custom button.

The Chrome browser of the user who created a preset, saves a copy of the preset locally. When this user opens the Custom menu, both presets are displayed:

  • one is the preset saved in TaskForce's work folder,
  • another one is the local copy.

If one becomes redundant, it can be easily deleted.
