T35u Read Write SATA/IDE Bridge


All Forensic Bridges can switch between a write-blocked or read/write device by adjusting the DIP switch settings located behind the break-away plastic on the device. However, once the break-away plastic is removed, that device needs to be validated before each use to ensure the proper configuration of the device was selected. At the request of forensic examiners, the yellow-cased bridges is created to dedicate to read/write operation as a way ensure read/write operation to help eliminate the potential for misuse during forensic investigations.
