TIM is the first forensic imaging software built to take full advantage of today's advanced multi-core, multi-threading computer systems. Released in January 2010, TIM provides unprecedented imager function, performance, and ease of use. TIM's unique graphical user interface displays real-time status that helps examiners quickly recognize imaging process bottlenecks. As the next generation in forensic imaging software, TIM is capable of delivering astounding HDD imaging speeds and is optimized for imaging with write-blockers, which protect data while it is being collected during the computer forensic process. TIM is an intuitive and information-rich application that was built to improve forensic imaging productivity. TIM outperforms all leading forensic software imaging tools, as performance tests have shown that TIM and write blockers measured imaging speeds up to four times faster than currently available forensic data acquisition software. TIM is the first imaging software that integrates the performance capabilities of modern computer processor architectures and write-blockers.
