New Features

  • Logical imaging and search – A user can now acquire forensically-sound logical images from locally attached drives and network shares. A user can image the entire filesystem, manually select specific folders and files, or use the powerful Files to Acquire screen to define a targeted search profile using pre-defined and custom criteria. The Files to Acquire search function provides a basic (default) and advanced mode, which can be simply enabled and disabled in the default settings screen. [TBL-2643]
  • Detect drives with whole disk encryption – Automatically detects drives encrypted with the following whole disk encryption types: Microsoft BitLocker & BitLocker To Go, Apple FileVault 2, Linux LUKS, BestCrypt, Symantec PGP Disk. When the TX1 detects an encrypted drive, it displays an information message indicating the encryption type on the drive tile summary and the drive detail screen. The encryption type is also reported in the forensic log. [TBL-2635]
  • Detect Apple Fusion Drives on Apple Macs connected in Target Disk Mode – Detects and presents both physical drives (HDD and SSD) configured as one Fusion Drive on Apple Macs connected to the TX1 in Target Disk Mode. Fusion Drives are configured on some Apple iMacs and Mac Minis. [TBL-2843]
  • Display more USB device descriptors – The following USB descriptors are now displayed in the USB device media detail screen and reported in the forensic log: Class, SubClass, Protocol, VID (Vendor ID), and PID (Product ID). [TBL-2836]


  • SMB 3.0 is now the default SMB version selected when adding a CIFS share. [TBL-3025]
  • A user can now select file sizes larger than 2GB for E01 file types. [TBL-2518]
  • The physical port to which a drive is connected is now reported in the forensic log. [TBL-2323]
  • iSCSI and CIFS network shares can now be added within the job setup workflow. [TBL-2465]
  • Performance is now improved when using the E01 file format. [TBL-2810]
  • Increased the height of the language selection list window so that it now displays all values without scrolling. [TBL-2957]

Issues Fixed

  • After performing a secure erase on some SSDs the TX1 will report the drive has Security Lock enabled. [TBL-2762]
  • TX1 falsely indicates HPA is temporarily removed from some SSDs configured with a 28-bit HPA. [TBL-3138]
  • Unable to remove DCO from an Intel 320 SSD when the DCO and HPA are set using the same capacity. [TBL-2809]
  • Some PCIe AHCI SSDs may report incorrect HPA or DCO configuration and display a non-functioning HPA/DCO remove button in the drive detail screen. [TBL-3103]
  • Cannot properly mount some iSCSI targets that have the iSCSI service bound to more than one live Ethernet interface. [TBL-3090]
  • Windows Dynamic disks with MBR partition style are not detected. [TBL-3107]
  • CIFS shares protected by NTLM authentication may not mount. [TBL-2538]
  • Some USB drives with a FAT32 filesystem that is larger than the size of the drive are not detected. [TBL-2804]
  • Dates stored in the E01 header are interpreted incorrectly by some third-party software (but are interpreted correctly by EnCase). [TBL-2996]
  • E01 or Ex01 images created with a large number of segment files (in the thousands) may not import into EnCase. [TBL-2712]
  • Writing E01 or Ex01 images to a Windows 7 CIFS fileshare using SMB version 2.1 or 3.0 may create corrupted files. [TBL-2977]
  • E01 duplication jobs with non-ascii characters entered into user data entry fields (Examiner name, Case ID, Notes, or Image name) will cause the TX1 to reboot when the job starts. [TBL-2989]
  • Duplication jobs with case notes that are very long (40+ lines) will cause the TX1 to reboot when the job starts. [TBL-3187]
  • The forensic log list may report stale information for active jobs. [TBL-2298]
  • TX1 shows zero errors in forensic log for a drive that encountered recoverable read errors. [TBL-2744]
  • Unable to queue a verification job on a drive that is concurrently being used in a duplication job. [TBL-2280]
  • Jobs added to the queue behind an active restore job may not run immediately even if the drives used in the new jobs are available. [TBL-2818]
  • Attempting to eject a PCIe NVMe SSD may display the error "Failed to eject drive" and not eject properly. [TBL-2299]
  • Incorrect warning message displays when wiping unlocked drives encrypted by the TX1. [TBL-2832]
  • iSCSI duplication log displays "FIXME" for the source file system location instead of the IQN and IP address. [TBL-3128]
