Linux powered TreCorder speeds up data collection at crime scenes
A new forensic computer from a UK based company promises to make the task of gathering evidence at the scene of a crime much easier. The dual booting Windows XP and Suse Linux TreCorder portable forensic lab is built into a rugged portable chassis and can simultaneously copy up to three hard drives at a speed of 2GB per minute per drive. This is a substantial time saving over the kind of kit currently being used by forensic detectives in the field.
Three Tableau T345 write blockers mean that the drives being copied can be IDE, S-ATA or SCSI. Actually, they can be all three at the same time if need be.
