Hi guys,
I'm a forensics student and have just started getting down to the nitty gritty stuff in my courses. Such as learning to use FTK and EnCase to examine drives and such. Just wondering, whats the best recommended hardware used to acquire an image of a drive? As of now, I just have FTK Imager downloaded onto my external drive, and I just plug it in to whatever computer I want to image, and run Imager off the external and save the Image file to the external. I would like any hardware recommendations that are write-blocked and that you can just plug into a SATA or IDE drive and acquire the image that way?

So any recommendations would be good.

Check out the Tableau SATA/IDE combo write blocker. There are other ofcourse... but we have a few of these and they work great.

Good luck!

Ill assume that since you are a student, you won't want to break the bank. That in mind, I would check out Wiebetech products. They make a write blocked usb combo dock that is pretty affordable.

I highly recommend the Voom Hardcopy. Currently on version 3. I've seen nothing that is faster.
