Storage peripheral maker
has introduced a new version of its DriveDock device aimed at labs and law enforcement called the Forensic DriveDock.

The DriveDock is a tiny peripheral that enables users to attach a raw hard disk drive mechanism to the FireWire interface on a Mac or PC. The Forensic DriveDock differs from the regular model by being write blocked, making it possible to read data but not accidentally overwrite it. This makes it ideal for laboratory and field analysis, according to WiebeTech CEO James Wiebe.
“Forensic DriveDock exactly fits the requirements because it carries the rare attribute of being a write blocked FireWire bridge, combined with extremely small size and extremely high performance. As a result, it will be a standard piece of equipment for police departments who are engaged in the forensic analysis of computer equipment,” explained Wiebe.
The Forensic DriveDock uses the Oxford OXFW911 FireWire bridge, and it is plug-and-play compatible with various flavors of Windows and Mac OS. It measures 1 x 1.54 by 2.42 inches, and includes an AC adapter.
The Forensic DriveDock is available now for US$249.95.
