Write Protected Devices

A “Hot-Swappable”, write protected, hard drive enclosure provides the investigator the ability to acquire digital images from several source hard drives without the need for down time to swap drives. The destination drive bay is also “Hot-Swappable” to enable the investigator to use several drives for larger images, without the need to shut the system down. Today, all electronic devices (cameras, phones, PDAs, etc.) come with small media cards.  This system anticipates the need to image these media cards.  The Write Protected USB Port, it will provide the convenience of acquiring digital images from Multimedia Cards, Secure Digital Cards, Smart Media, Compact Flash, Memory Stick and Memory Stick Pro.


Additional trays are supplied to accommodate either IDE drives, SATA drives or laptop drives. The Tableau Forensic Bridge supports write protected SATA/SCSI/IDE/USB ports along with HPA and DCO. Years of providing components to computer forensic investigators and supplying to law enforcement agencies have brought us to this system. We believe we have created the all-in-one system for the serious computer forensic investigator. But, we know we can’t meet everyone’s custom desires at once.
