Any Windows-based software works seamlessly with Guardonix, as if it was working directly with the original source drive.
Stabilizes USB Connection
USB protocol requires the PC and storage device to be in constant synchronization with one another. If the storage device fails to respond quickly enough, or responds irregularly due to bad sectors or other read instability issues then it may lose its current state and become desynchronized with the PC, causing Windows to freeze, crash, and/or drop the USB storage device.
Guardonix hardware stands between the PC and storage device, making sure that the connection to the PC is always well-maintained, regardless of what’s happening with the storage device. This way even if the storage device becomes desynchronized, only its connection to Guardonix hardware will be reinitialized, which will not have any impact on the PC, allowing data acquisition to proceed without interruption. Guardonix hardware maintains a live connection even if the storage device is entirely disconnected during imaging.
Blocks Write Commands
Guardonix hardware only forwards commands which will not change the contents of the attached USB drive, guaranteeing write blocking on the hardware level.
Shows Status Information
The current reading speed, sector address being read, drive status (Idle, Processing, Not Responding, Disconnected), bad sectors, and write attempts are shown in real time.
