Welcome to our blog!

We are DeepSpar and we have been manufacturing professional data recovery equipment since 2004.

At this point thousands of dedicated data recovery companies utilize our tools and Guardonix is our first device built primarily for computer forensics.

We can proudly say that our manufacturing, development, and technical support services have always been provided from right here in Canada.

In this blog we will periodically post videos giving technical information on different computer forensics concepts and showing how Guardonix is different from traditional write blockers.

Most of the features we show in this blog require the Professional Edition upgrade.

February 20, 2019 - Guardonix Demo Video

In this first video we show what the Guardonix kit comes with, the installation process, and how it works with physically degraded HDDs.

July 14, 2019 - Guardonix Visualization and Reporting Features

We briefly go over the visualization and reporting features which clarify what is really happening during the data acquisition process. We talk about USB drive initialization process, USB-SCSI error messaging system, logging & visualization of all reads/writes/errors, and graphical speed display.

July 21, 2019 - Writeblocking Through Windows Registry

We cover the pros and cons of software write blocking of USB storage devices through the registry. We show that this method only blocks writes that are processed through the file system mounted by Windows, leaving the drive wide open to writes made by any applications/services which work outside of the Windows partition manager.

August 10, 2019 - Control Options in Guardonix

We further expand on some of the key control options provided by Guardonix. We talk about preventing file system mounting through diskpart vs by Guardonix, reporting the source as read-only, responding to write attempts in different ways, forcing the drive to work at USB2.0 or 3.0 speeds, turning USB source power on/off, and preventing harmful self-scan procedures used by most modern drives.

August 29, 2019 - Recovering Unstable NVMe SSDs with Guardonix

We show two of the most common types of NVMe SSD read instability issues and how Guardonix handles them.
