Installed in a standard 5.25″ PC bay, the Forensic LabDock U5 gives convenient, front-panel access to suspect hard drives and thumb drives. Write-blocking is done in hardware, with proven WiebeTech write-blocking technology.

Do you know what could be lurking in the hidden areas of a hard drive? HPA (Host Protected Areas) or DCO (Device Configuration Overlays) can exist on hard drives, which are not detected or accessible by your operating system. The Forensic LabDock U5 will alert you if these areas exist, so you can inspect them. The Forensic LabDock U5 comes with software to let you choose how to handle any hidden areas it encounters.
Forensic LabDock U5 offers native connections for the most common drives types, such as SATA and IDE/PATA. Optional SATA and PATA Adapters are available that allow access to many additional types of drives such as ZIF drives, notebook drives, drives found in iPods, and more. SATA and PATA Adapters work with many of our docking products, including the Forensic LabDock.
