A UNIQUE TOOL TO GET EVIDENCE FROM DAMAGED STORAGE MEDIA

The PC-3000 Portable III Ultimate System is a hardware-software solution to recover digital evidence from logically or/and physically damaged SATA/PATA/USB Hard Disk Drives, SATA/M.2 PCIe NVMe Solid State Drives, and RAID. Besides you may overcome the password protection if necessary. The tool is primarily intended for digital forensics experts and has many useful forensic features.

TAILORED FOR FORENSICS DATA RECOVERY IN THE FIELD

Use the PC-3000 Portable both with a desktop computer in your lab and a laptop or in a Standalone Mode at the crime scene. With 2 active licenses, you are able to arrange your workstation wherever you need it!

4 DIAGNOSTIC PORTS TO RECOVER EVIDENCE FROM 3 DRIVES AT THE SAME TIME

Connect your storage media directly via the PC-3000 Portable III source ports: USB, SATA, PATA, PCIe, NVMe.

 

TARGET SATA1 AND SATA2 PORTS FOR DATA IMAGING TO DESTINATION DRIVES

In certain modes, you may also use them to increase to 3 the number of devices you deal with simultaneously. Max speed of SATA ports: up to 360 MB/s.


 
 

HARDWARE WRITE PROTECTION TO ENSURE EVIDENCE INTEGRITY

A special switch on the device blocks any alteration of data during the extraction or imaging with the source SATA0 and USB ports. When it’s turned on, a yellow LED lights up and indicates that the record block is activated.




 
 

LOGGING AND REPORTS GENERATION

View, save and print reports about the condition of drives you examine for further investigation. The detailed information in the report can help you to better understand the internal hardware status of the drive you deal with.




 
 
Included in the delivery of the SSD and Ultimate kits

BREAKTHROUGH: M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD SUPPORT!

The world’s only solution to deal with damaged NVMe SSDs! Recover evidence when no one can: diagnose the condition of NVMe SSDs and extract data from such damaged devices thanks to a special universal M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD/M.2 SATA SSD adapter included in the delivery kit.




 
 

FASTER AND EASIER WORK WITH USB HDD/SSD/FLASH DRIVES

Save time during evidence recovery from partially damaged USB HDDs and SSDs. In most cases, you do not need to search for a donor PCB or solder the SATA interface since the OS doesn’t influence a drive, the reading of the drive with many bad sectors and freezes is stable, and the tech commands are fully supported via the USB interface.
