This document reports the results from testing the VOOM HardCopy 3P - Firmware Version 2-04, against the Digital Data Acquisition Tool Assertions and Test Plan Version 1.0.


Test results provide the information needed for developers to improve tools, users to make informed choices, and the legal community and others to understand the tools' capabilities. The VOOM HardCopy 3P - Firmware Version 2.04 is designed to handle ATA and SATA source drives. The device can copy data to either one or two destination drives. The tool acquired visible and hidden sectors from the test media completely and accurately for all test cases; however, for one test case, DA-08-HPA, when acquiring a physical drive that contained hidden sectors, the size of the hidden area was reported incorrectly. The first section of the report summarizes results from the test runs. The remaining sections of the report describe how the tests were conducted, discuss any anomalies that were encountered, and provide documentation of test-case run details. One section provides justification for the selection of test cases from the set of possible cases defined in the test plan for digital data acquisition tools. Generally, the test cases are selected based on features offered by the tool. Another section describes in more detail any anomalies, followed by a section the lists hardware and software used to run the test cases. The concluding section describes each test-case run. The descriptions list all test assertions used in the test case, the expected result, and the actual result. Extensive tables
