1. Product Description

DIBS® RAID is a tough yet lightweight unit designed to enable the fast copying of a suspect computer hard disk onto another clean hard disk. The copy can then be examined for the presence of evidential material without risk of damaging the original. The average copying speed can be as fast as 2.4GB per minute and, depending on the specifications of the hard drives, up to 4GB per minute.

Two complete copying units are included together with a selecton of hard disks to which copies can be made.

The unit is ideal for making fast copies for initial analysis and assessment of evidence. A copied disk can then be examined with the same unit attached to a forensic workstation in write protect mode. If evidence is found then a second copy of the disk can be made and preserved, and/or the evidence transfered to another media such as CD ROM. This gives the maximum level of evidential integrity and security.

DIBS® RAID is designed to be portable and is supplied in a tough, waterproof polypropylene case. It can be used in both the laboratory and on-site.

2. Recommended Areas of Use

DIBS® RAID is designed to be used wherever a fast copy of a hard disk is required. For example, when conducting a covert raid on-site when time is limitod when needing to conduct an initial analysis of drive contents.

3. Forensic Soundness

Computer forensics is concerned with the recovery of information from computers in such a way that it can be used as evidence in a court of law. It is primarily concerned with rules of evidence, legal processes and forensic procedures Computers are the subject matter and are of secondary concern. Furthermore, in forensic science it is always necessary to ensure that accuracy is maintained, whilst speed is of lesser importance Therefore, work is completed 'efficiently', that is as fast as possible without sacrificing accuracy.
