Since its initial release in 2008, the Atola Insight has received excellent user reviews because of its diverse functionality, user friendly interface, and strong product support channels.
Forensic and E-Discovery solution
The Atola Insight has several key features for data capture in forensic and e-discovery cases:
Addressing all four phases of Data Recovery
1. HDD Diagnosis
Successful recovery job starts with accurate diagnosis of the problem.
The Atola Insight is the ONLY product in the data recovery industry with the
ability to accurately evaluate a hard drive's health and
pinpoint specific problems. This feature puts Atola Insight users
at a major advantage by enabling them to take all factors
into account before moving forward with a recovery.
2. Firmware Recovery and Password Removal
When a hard drive is experiencing firmware problems, it is not usually
accessible using conventional data recovery products
or imaging utilities. The Atola Insight recognizes firmware
corruption using its advanced diagnostic module and repairs it
with the click of a button for supported HDD models.
For non-supported HDD models, the Atola Insight recognizes firmware
corruption and provides direct access to firmware files (modules),
enabling expert technicians to manually repair the corruption.
The Atola Insight properly recognizes locked hard drives and allows
fully automated extraction or removal of an unknown ATA password
with a single click of a button.
3. HDD Duplication / Backup Image Creation
Extracting every fragment of data from a damaged or unstable hard drive is a crucial part of the data recovery process. The Atola Insight's duplication/imaging system allows the user to completely customize the imaging process to suit each recovery job.
This module now comes standard with SELECTIVE HEAD IMAGING, allowing the operator to
identify the status of individual read/write head and create an individual imaging approach for each one.
4. File Recovery
File recovery is the last phase of most data recovery jobs.
The Atola Insight's file recovery
engine is simple, intuitive, and effective. It integrates seamlessly
with Disk Duplication and Case Management systems to effectively extract
data and put the finishing touches on data recovery cases.
Advanced password removal capability
Atola Insight automatically removes ATA passwords from hard drives in just 2 minutes (for supported models). This highly complex feature can be executed by the operator with one click of a button and the password is displayed after it is removed whenever possible. See Password Removal page for details.
Well-rounded feature set
Atola Insight comes equipped with a range of utility features for each step of the recovery process. These features include device configuration for modifying hard drive parameters, HDD current monitoring for continuous diagnosis, a disk editor for modifying hard drive data, and an add/remove password function. See Disk Utilities page for details.
Smooth case management from start to finish
Atola Insight is the only data recovery product on the market that was built with case management in mind. All functions are tied in to one-another and the system tracks and records every action taken with a given hard drive. If a session is stopped and the hard drive is disconnected from Atola Insight and then later reconnected, the system will recognize the hard drive and give the operator the option to re-open the case. See the Case Management page for details.
