Stanford University Libraries has just received notice that our Forensic Recovery of Evidence Devices (FREDs) are almost ready to ship. The expected shipping date for this lab equipment is slated for August 13th. The FREDS will be the keystone in SULAIR's new Digital Forensics Lab and will give us the capability to preserve and analyze born digital collection materials. The FREDS are configured to read all types of hand held media including hard drives, CDs/DVDs, 3 1/2" and 5 1/2" floppy disks, multiple tape formats and most types of consumer grade flash memory. Each FRED will also be loaded with a suite of forensic analysis software that will allow curators, donors, and our researchers new methods for reading and interpreting born digital collections.
