Forensic RTX
Portable write blocked access for SATA or PATA drives

OVERVIEW

Lawyers, forensics investigators, and techs who want to analyze evidence or image drives in the lab or field rely upon the CRU® WiebeTech® RTX®. Use the unit in the lab, or carry it with the heavy-duty handle that allows for easy transport.

This desktop-based storage enclosure allows investigators to examine 3.5" IDE/PATA or SATA drives in easy-to-use write-blocked bays and copy data onto SATA drives.

Write-blocked drive bays prevent data from being written back to the drive. Using WiebeTech's proprietary write-block technology offers easy read-only access to suspect hard drives through high speed FireWire 800 (400 compatible), USB 3.0, or eSATA interfaces. WiebeTech's write-block technology is compatible with forensic acquisition and analysis software. Each bay offers both dual FireWire 800 (400 compatible) and single USB and eSATA ports.

The Forensic RTX also offers TrayFree™ drive-swapping, allowing fast insertion and removal of drives from the enclosure without needing tools.

Various software applications exist which allow a user to create or modify a Host Protected Area (HPA) or Device Configuration Overlay (DCO) table on a hard drive. There are four LEDs on the front of the Forensic RTX which alert you to the presence of Hidden Areas (HPAs or DCOs) on a drive in any of the four bays.

Additional features:

  • 1st and 3rd bay are write blocked
  • 1st bay is either IDE/PATA or SATA
  • 3rd bay is SATA
  • 2nd and 4th (SATA) bays are read/write for captured data
  • Compatibility with forensic acquisition and analysis software
  • All-metal construction
  • SATA bays are shock absorbing for drive protection
  • 3-year warranty
  • Free US-based customer support

Whether you’re a forensic investigator, technician, or cyber security analyst, the CRU WiebeTech Forensic RTX is a necessary part of your toolkit.
