I did more testing (and actual real-case use) of the Guardonix since the last post. In short, with the latest update to the Guardonix, the speed is faster. Like most people, I like things to be faster! But practically, I know that speed is fine, but accuracy is final.
From last year, my go-to write blocker became the Guardonix. I was sold on the ' data recovery ' aspect of the Guardonix, in that I had an original evidence drive in a real case that had bad sectors. I knew that the drive had problems because when it was given to me by the IT point-of-contact, the drive had a yellow sticker note of "bad drive". Visions of sending the drive off to a lab for recovery meant waiting for a week..or two weeks...or however long it would take. But, I was able to image the entire drive with Guardonix
