WiebeTech today announced an improved version of its that supports both IDE and SATA drives in a write-blocked desktop forensic drive enclosure with up to four removable drive trays. The new Forensic BayDock is available in both a four bay (Quad) version and a two bay (Dual) version. The Quad Bay version is available with two IDE (one write-blocked; one read/write) and two SATA bays (one write-blocked; one read/write). The Dual version is available with two SATA bays (one write-blocked; one read/write). Quad, Dual and Single bay versions are also available that support IDE drives only.
Write block support is provided via WiebeTech's write blocked forensic FireWire-IDE and FireWire-SATA interfaces. Conventional read/write access is also provided. In configurations that support SATA, access to the SATA read/write drive is via a native SATA port, allowing highest performance imaging of drives. Forensic BayDock is assembled from presentation grade anodized aluminum with black anodized accents. The dual and quad versions use an integrated internal high capacity power supply. All power supplies are compatible with worldwide voltages (100-240VAC). Units are easily stackable and daisy chainable.
