  Abstract: Results of the test cases run against Tableau Forensic Duplicator Model TD1 show that all visible and hidden sectors of the drives were successfully overwritten. The Tableau Forensic TD1 is a multi-function forensic device that performs a variety of forensic functions that include Disk-to-Disk and Disk-to-File duplication, Format Disk, Wipe Disk, Hash Disk, HPA/DCO Detection and Removal, View/Save/Print Log Files and Blank Disk Check. The test cases discussed in this report cover only disk wiping and removal of HPA/DCO for wiping of hidden sectors. The report is divided into four sections: Section 1 is a summary of the results from the test runs; Section 2 presents a justification for the selection of test cases from the set of possible cases that are defined in the test plan for forensic media preparation tools; Section 3 is a listing of hardware and software used to run the test cases along with links to additional information about the items used; and Section 4 which contains a description of each test case listing all test assertions used in the test case, the expected result and the actual result.
