SAFE Block

SAFE Block is a software-based write-blocker that facilitates the quick and safe acquisition and/or analysis of any disk or flash storage media attached directly to your Windows workstation. It is proven to be safe, significantly faster than hardware write-blocking solutions, and used across the globe by agencies, law enforcement, and private firms.

Due to recent licensing changes by Microsoft, SAFE is no longer commercially available. Please stay tuned as our teams develop a new SAFE 2.0 for Windows.
