HDD diagnostics was never done this far before  (in any software or hardware) as it is done in Atola Insight.    
The diagnostic process reports the exact problem with the drive, whether it is a PCB (electronic) or head failure,
media damage, motor freezing, firmware area damage or file system damage.

Atola Insight Forensic can work in fully automatic mode: it can automatically diagnose all hard disks components
and let the operator know what the exact problem is; it can also show/remove ATA-passwords (User or Master,
any security level) of supported hdd.

Outstanding: The cloning is supported to up to three targets - with unmatched speed - a perfect feature for any type
___________of business: Forensic specialists, repair shops, data recovery or investigative organisations.

The unit has outstanding hardware features:       

  • Serial port
    for firmware area access of some hard drives
  • Power control
    to take full control over the hard disks power. The protected power source for attached hard drives
    will withstand any overload condition, including a short circuit.
  • Real time current monitor
    for monitoring the 5V and 12V currents separately. The data received from the monitor not only serves as
    a short-circuit protection, but also used for hard drive diagnostics (to detect motor damage, burnt circuits,
    etc). The oscilloscope allows the operator to keep an eye on hard drive power consumption levels.
  • LED indicator
    display the status of the HDD power, operation/error status, IDE/SATA (BUSY/DATA) and RS-232 port activity.
  • Write protection switch
    Turned on it disables a write operation to the source drive
  • PCIe Extension Port
    for optional PCIe extension adapters  [ see here more details ]
