• November 26, 2020 ACE Lab Participated in the FiFE´20 Digital Forensics Fair, Spain

    ACE Lab has participated in the online FiFE´20 Digital Forensics Fair – one of the most popular gatherings of government agencies and private companies in Spain. This time, we have shared our knowledge in recovering evidence from SSDs based on the PCIe interface and WD SMR drives with TRIM. These topics are significant nowadays because, previously, there were no solutions to the issues related to such drives.

    Today, you can work with different PCIe SSDs thanks to the PC-3000 Portable III Systems and bypass the TRIM command on modern WD SMR HDDs in some cases! To learn more, please follow the link below.

  • November 19, 2020 A Video of the ACE Lab Webinar on Data Recovery for Beginners and Start-ups

  • September 16, 2020 The New PCIe x16 SSD Adapter Is Now Available for Order!

    We are glad to announce that the new PCIe x16 SSD Adapter for custom and native NVMe SSDs with PCIe x1-x16 interface is now available for order!

    The new adapter is extremely useful for the work with the drives that have a full-size PCIe bus as the only option to plug an SSD (e.g. Intel DC P4618, Samsung PM1733). You may come upon such drives in server platforms and data centers, because they are very stable and powerful. However, the bad sectors can still appear due to prolonged use. In this case, the new PCIe x16 SSD Adapter paired with the PC-3000 Portable III helps to bypass bad sectors and get data from an SSD.

  • September 08, 2020 The PCIe NVMe/AHCI Adapter for Apple Macbook SSD Is in Stock Now!

    We, at ACE Lab, continuously work on adding the support of as much storage media as possible. From now on you can deal with logically damaged Apple Macbook SSDs (from 2017 onwards) thanks to the new PCIe NVMe/AHCI Adapter for Apple Macbook SSD!

    The adapter works in pair with the PC-3000 Portable III Systems. Besides, if you get the PC-3000 Portable III SSD or Ultimate System by the end of September, you will receive the new PCIe NVMe/AHCI Adapter for Apple Macbook SSD as a bonus!
