Parallel ImagingPerform multiple imaging tasks from the same source drive to multiple destinations using different imaging formats. Clone to a network location or a destination drive using mirror copy mode while simultaneously imaging in e01 or .dd format to a different destination drive. Requires the purchase of the Multi-Task option.
Optional Targeted/Logical Imaging feature allows you to create a logical image using pre-set, custom filters, file signature filters and/or keyword search to capture only the specific files needed. An MFT report can be generated that contains a potential deleted file list. Format output to L01, LX01, ZIP or directory tree.

*The Talon Ultimate achieves speeds of over 40GB/min using solid state “suspect” drives that contain a freshly installed Windows “X” OS and random data. Settings used are e01/ex01 image format, with compression and with verify “on”. The specification and condition of the suspect hard drives as well as the mode, image format and settings used during the imaging process may affect the achieved speeds.
