In reply to your question, Detective Woodall sent me this:
Basically, I want to show newer officers the advancements from long ago
to todays storage and operating media.
I have a collection of various USB devices, hard disks (old and new) and
various storage media going back through floppies, syquest disks, zip,
old RLL interface drives, old 8 inch floppies, mainframe reels, and such
and continue back showing how we have advanced to todays solid state
drives with no moving parts. One of the pieces I use is my first
"portable" computer. It is an old Kaypro green screen that still works.
Folks get a kick out of that.
It is basically a show and tell presentation. As part of it, I also
talk about and show them ways of secreting data in hidden USB devices
and have a collection of "unique" USB drives and teach them things to
watch for when at an initial scene.
It is an entry level training session intended more to get them
interested in our field.
