Product Description

Forensics investigators, technicians, and system builders who want to create a digital forensic workstation rely upon the CRU® WiebeTech® Forensic LabDock™ S5. Installed in a standard 5.25" PC bay, the Forensic LabDock S5 gives convenient, front-panel access to suspect hard drives. Write-blocking is done in hardware, with proven WiebeTech write-blocking technology.

Forensic LabDock S5 offers native connections for the most common drives types, such as SATA and IDE/PATA. Optional SATA and PATA Adapters are available that allow access to many additional types of drives such as ZIF drives, notebook drives, drives found in iPods, and more. With the use of a CRU RedPort™ card, the Forensic LabDock S5 will have write-blocked front panel SAS drive access as well.  A bundle configuration is available that includes the Forensic LabDock S5, RedPort card, and cable.

Do you know what could be lurking in the hidden areas of a hard drive? HPA (Host Protected Areas) or DCO (Device Configuration Overlays) can exist on hard drives, which are not detected or accessible by your operating system. The Forensic LabDock will alert you if these areas exist, so you can inspect them. The Forensic LabDock comes with software to let you choose how to handle any hidden areas it encounters.

Additional features:

  • 2-year warranty 
  • Includes cables
  • Free US-based customer support


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