FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Forensic SF-5000™ With USB Write PROtect™
Chatsworth, California, February 7, 2003 - The new Forensic
SF-5000™ is engineered to the world’s top law enforcement agencies’
exacting standards to be the fastest, most reliable and compact,
forensic data capturing system. Using its ultra-fast and reliable CRC-32
engine, image capture direct-to-IDE (Ultra DMA2) operations may be
performed at speeds approaching 1.6 GB/min*. The system’s
unidirectional, non-tampering drive-capture ensures exact, bit-for-bit
duplication and verification. With its lightweight portability,
rugged construction and field-tested capabilities, the SF-5000™ is the
“data capturing” weapon of choice for law enforcement field
investigators, and laboratories. The Forensic SF-5000™ Kit also includes
a portable printer to print detailed reports on site.
system will make exact copies of suspect drives with zero alteration of
the drive. The specialized software allows for the exact copy 100% of
all files on the suspect’s hard drive including deleted files, hidden
files and file slack. To ensure the user can not over-write or corrupt
the suspect’s drive, the system copies only from an external source. The
SF-5000™ unit is compatible with all standard or proprietary operating
systems, and is designed with a controlled airflow system for expanded
duplication needs to ensure no loss of data due to drive overheating.
SF-5000™ features a variety of connectivity options to speed the data
capturing process. Investigators may now copy directly through the USB
port, from the suspect IDE drive, through the parallel port, or through
the PCMCIA port (with the CloneCard Pro).
USB Write PROtect™ adapter connects to the SF-5000 to allow USB
connectivity to the source drive for data capturing. In addition, the
WritePROtect™ adapter guarantees read-only access when analyzing the
destination drive under Windows. This ensures full destination drive
protection against inadvertent writes. After a successful capture, the
destination drive can remain within the SF-50000u and connect to a PC or
laptop through the USB port for further analysis.
optional Desktop Write PROtect™ version connects via IDE cable to the
SF-5000 for data capturing. The Desktop WritePROtect™ guarantees
read-only access when analyzing the destination drive under Windows.
This ensures full destination drive protection against inadvertent
SF-5000™ includes the Logicube CloneCard Pro® for capturing data on
laptops through the PCMCIA slot at speeds exceeding 175 MB/min. This
speeds the data capturing process; 15 times faster than through the
parallel port. This eliminates the need to take the drive out of the
caddy or laptop, use costly adapters, or lengthy waits for capturing
data over the parallel port.
The optional OmniScreen™ software is also available. This is a high
speed search engine, running from a forensically sound boot floppy disk.
This software will search a suspect's computer hard disk for keyword
evidence at the rate of about 5MB per second. The suspect computer hard
disk will not be altered in any way. The investigator can specify up to
460 search items. Search items can be text (names, addresses, etc.,
up to 28 characters each in length) or images. This software is now
used by law enforcement agencies and commercial businesses in over
twenty countries throughout the world.
Forensic SF-5000 includes many advanced features:
Authentication (Either hardware or software based) - These signatures
are computed on both source and destination hard drives, and appear on
the printed report.
CRC-32 Engine - Unit computes a complete CRC 32 signature of source and
destination drives before and after Capture to ensure:
1. Source and destination do not match prior to Capture
2. Source drive has not changed
3. Source and destination match after Capture
4. CRC-32 signatures appear on the printed report.
Includes Special PC Software Application - To compute CRC-32
signature from both the source and destination hard drives.
Unidirectional Data Transfer - Copies only from the external data
source to prevent inadvertent overwriting or corrupting of the suspect's
Hardcopy On-Site Reporting - The system includes a portable
printer to print a detailed report on-site. (Serial number of both
destination and suspect's drive, the make model and size of both drives
being used in the operation, and a statement documenting the mode of
copy, how many sectors copied and source destination data checksums.)
With Any Operating System - The unit will work with any standard or
proprietary operating system. In Capture mode you are assured of an
exact bit for bit copy of any data stored on a suspect drive.
Parallel Port & PC Card Slot Capability - This is ideal for
situations in which the computer’s case can't be opened such as sealed
notebook chassis, or potentially booby-trapped cases.
Rugged, Field-Tested Case - This is a specially designed and tested,
airtight, waterproof case for field operations. The case includes
special protection for the Forensic SF-5000 unit, a power source,
storage pockets for drives and cables, a full-page portable inkjet
printer, and a power distribution panel.
“hidden” Data –
The system will find Deleted Files, File slack, Hidden partitions,
Un-partitioned area (Partition gap), File masking (type alteration),
Drive ID alteration, Drive “scrubbing”, Bad sectors, Password protected,
Encrypted data, and Temp files
Unit Integrity check - the unit will automatically check to see if
there are any problems with the data cables, or data integrity between
source and destination drives before beginning the capture process.
Wipe Out - Unit provides means to erase a drive prior to capturing a
suspect drive. Or, erase just the remainder of the destination drive,
immediately after Capture to ensure old data is not left behind on the
Bad sector prompt - There are four available modes for source
drive, bad-sector behavior:
1. Abort - Aborts the capture session when a bad sector is
2. Skip - Skips the bad sector and continues operation (Bad sector
address will be shown on the printed report)
3. Retry - An extended retry mechanism attempts to retrieve data on
the "offensive" sector (logged to printed report)
4. Recover - Uses more sophisticated recovery mechanisms to recover
data on sector. (Slow! But effective.)
