Digital and forensics investigators, technicians, and lawyers who want to view, evaluate, or image a drive safely rely upon the CRU® WiebeTech® Forensic UltraDock™ v4. It’s an easy-to-use, professional-grade, drive dock that provides a plethora of host and drive connections.

To use, connect a suspect hard drive—IDE or SATA—to the Forensic UltraDock v4, plug in power, and attach a cable to a host computer. The drive connector enables automatic alignment and easy insertion. An included mounting plate can be screwed onto the bottom of the drive to protect the drive's circuitry.

The Forensic UltraDock's LED indicator light and easy screen menu also clearly identify the work mode. You can even detect, remove, create, or modify Host Protected Areas (HPAs) and Device Configuration Overlays (DCOs).

The Forensic UltraDock v4 puts drive information at your fingertips. Quickly access selected important SMART data such as hours used, number of power cycles, and disk health. It can also display the model and serial number reported by the drive's firmware. Free downloadable software can also allow you to view this information on your computer and save it to a file for easy inclusion in a case report.

The Forensic UltraDock v4 has USB 2.0, eSATA, FireWire 400, and FireWire 800 connections. But if you need to work with a non-standard drive, there are a variety of adapters available for additional flexibility.

Additional features:

  • Multiple computer and drive connection types
  • Compatibility with forensic acquisition and analysis software
  • 3-year warranty
  • Free US-based customer support

Whether you’re a forensic investigator, technician, or cyber security analyst, the Forensic UltraDock v4 is a necessary part of your toolkit. Find a reseller near you or buy online.
