I'm an archivist and basically deals with material stored on obsolete formats. In order to retrieve the content that obsolescence or decay , I need to use devices or digital forensic software within my institution. Just like Harvard Library, they already used writeblockers (device that ensures information only flows one way, preventing data from being overwritten).
My question are,
1. What is the most important thing that I need to consider before use the device (writeblocker) within my institution?
2. Is it appropriate to used the device (writeblocker) in small archival institution?
Really hope for any comments/opinion/suggestion from all of you.
