Product Description

Stay home, send Ditto: Save time and money.

The hand-held Ditto Forensic FieldStation travels with you or a technician for use in creating local, remote, or networked disk clones and images, including logical imaging of user-selectable lists of files and folders. Configure and manage via network or on the unit itself. The Ditto FieldStation also helps you log user activity and maintain your chain of custody while using forensic (write-blocked) methods.

Flexibility and speed via browser-based interface

An easy-to-use web browser interface supports remote operation via network or VPN, providing access to Ditto configuration, user administration and user rights, as well as direct operation of Ditto cloning and imaging operations. This time- and money-saving capability speeds time to data capture, as well as allows organizations to optimize staffing and deployment.

Create logical and physical images in the field

The built-in menu system makes it easy to configure and perform forensic captures without an attached computer. Optionally, attach a computer for additional options such as generating complete listings of drive or file system contents to facilitate discovery, or automatically capture specific file types using the following Logical Image Modes:

  • Manual select
  • All files and directories
  • All files not part of a Windows OS
  • All files not part of a Windows OS or application
  • All files from the Windows Users directory
  • All temporary files created by Windows
  • All files except Swap and Hibernate
  • All most commonly used media files
  • All Microsoft Office files and PDFs
  • All financial files
  • User-customized profiles
Suspect Inputs (write-blocked)

Ditto natively supports many write-blocked inputs: SATA, eSATA, PATA, USB2.0. Additional acquisition interfaces are available via expansion modules, such as the Ditto USB 3.0 Expansion Module and Ditto SAS Expansion Module.

Destination Outputs

Use dual SATA outputs simultaneously with same performance as one eSATA (single, dual and mirrored). Images can also be output to large volumes, including NAS and other network destinations, as well as portable RAID enclosures.

Data Acquisition Modes

Clone, DD, E01, L01 with MD5 or SHA-1 hashing. Ditto also offers a combined mode that captures a clone and DD or E01 (to different destination drives) in a single pass reading of the suspect drive.

Complete and Secure Erasure

Ditto is capable of sanitizing drives with preset erase modes or a user configurable pattern.

Convenient, customized field kits are available for Ditto and accessories.
