Tableau TD3 Forensic Imager :

The Tableau TD3 is a powerful and intuitive modular forensic imaging system that uses a touchscreen graphical user interface. The TD3 provides many of the functions traditionally found in general-purpose, IT-oriented hard disk duplicators while also providing features and functions that serve specialized needs of the digital computer forensic industry, including:


  • Sustained data transfer rates of up to 7.2 GB/minute, while performing calculations of MD5 and SHA-1 hash values, also known as fingerprints.
  • Native support for SATA, USB 3.0 and FireWire hard disks from the source interface.
  • Additional support for SAS and IDE hard disks using expansion modules.
  • Native support for connecting to network storage CIFS and iSCSI shares.
  • Network-based read only (write blocked) access to attached storage media.
  • Detailed log generation for case documentation.
  • Automatic blank checking of source and destination drives.
  • HPA and DCO support for the detection and handling of hidden/protected data areas on source drives.
  • Remote web based user interface.

The TD3 was designed as a flexible modular imaging system. As shown above, the TD3 can stand alone and interface with SATA, USB 3.0, and FireWire source disks, a SATA destination disk, and network shares. You can also easily combine the TD3 with an Expansion Module and a TDS1 or TDS2 SATA Storage Module for additional capability. The TD3 is shown below connected directly to one of the Expansion Modules and the TDS2 SATA Storage Module.

Standard operations:

  • Disk-to-disk (clone) duplication
  • Disk-to-file (image) duplication using raw DD, .e01, .ex01, or .dmg formats
  • Format
  • Wipe
  • Hash (simultaneous MD5 and SHA-1)
  • HPA/DCO detection and removal
  • Blank Disk Check
