Acquiring data from damaged media
1. HDD Diagnosis
A successful acquisition job starts with accurate diagnosis of the media. The Atola Insight Forensic is the ONLY product in both data recovery and forensic industries with the ability to accurately evaluate a hard drive’s health and pinpoint specific problems. This feature puts our users at a major advantage by enabling them to take all factors into account before moving forward with data acquisition.
2. ATA Password Removal and Firmware recovery
The system properly recognizes locked hard drives and allows for a fully automated extraction or removal of an unknown ATA password with a single click of a button.
When a hard drive is experiencing firmware problems, it is not usually accessible using conventional data acquisition tools or imaging utilities. The Atola Insight Forensic recognizes firmware corruption using its advanced diagnostic module and repairs it with the click of a button for supported HDD models. For non-supported HDD models, the Atola Insight recognizes firmware corruption and provides direct access to firmware files (modules), enabling expert technicians to manually repair the corruption.
3. HDD Duplication / Backup Image Creation
Extracting every fragment of data from hard drive is a crucial part of the data acquisition process. The Atola Insight’s duplication/imaging system allows the user to completely customize the imaging process to suit each job, even when dealing with damaged or unstable media.
This module now comes standard with SELECTIVE HEAD IMAGING, allowing the operator to identify the status of individual read/write head and create an individual imaging approach for each one.
4. File Recovery
File recovery is the last phase of most data acquisition jobs. The Atola Insight’s file recovery engine is simple, intuitive, and effective. It integrates seamlessly with Disk Duplication and Case Management systems to effectively extract data.
