WiebeTech on Tuesday introduced its
Forensic Notebook DriveDock v4. It costs $399.95.
The Forensic Notebook DriveDock v4 is intended for forensic investigators and field techs who need to recover data from or image 2.5-inch IDE hard disk drives in the field or lab without risking the data on the drive. It is write blocked to prevent data from being written to the drive.
The DriveDock works with IDE-based notebook drives and connects to a Mac or PC using FireWire 400, FireWire 800 and USB 2.0. It has more LED indicators to monitor data traffic, including an indicator that shows users the active status of its write-block technology. Other LEDs show when FireWire or USB is attached, when the 12 volt input jack is active, when the disk drive power input is active, and when 5 volt output is active.
