Rapid Imaging

When imaging a drive you will achieve different speeds depending on the target devices specification.
A brand new SSD machine with USB 3 and eSata ports will image significantly quicker than a 5 year old
HDD machine. Regardless of the machine specification Detego® Ballistic is sure to image quicker than any other solution on the market. Below are the speeds that you can expect:


Hard Drive Mid Spec Machine High Spec Machine
128 GB Drive : <4 mins <3 mins
256 GB Drive : <8 mins <7 mins
512 GB Drive : <16 mins <13 mins
1028 GB Drive : <32 mins <26 mins


Standard Imaging vs Detego Ballistic Imager Extraction

Standard imaging uses a single collector to make a physical image from one disk to the other. Detego® Ballistic Imager is a patented solution for imaging a hard drive using multiple collection devices.

Limitations to Standard Imaging:

  • USB data throughput limitations writing data to a single device will result in longer imaging times.
  • Need to have a single collector that can accommodate the disk being imaged.

Why choose Detego® Ballistic Imager:

  • High data transfer speeds achieved by writing to multiple collectors simultaneously.
  • Use of multiple collectors allows to use smaller capacity collectors.
