Guardonix Demo Program

Hello, and thank you for your interest in the Guardonix Demo Program! The goal of this program is to give users an easy way to try out Guardonix to see the improvement over traditional writeblockers first-hand.

Qualification criteria:

This program is primarily intended for forensic examiners, investigators, or anyone else who performs frequent forensic analysis of HDDs, SSDs, and/or removable flash storage. We are accepting applicants from private companies as well as government agencies. This program is currently limited to applicants from USA, Canada, or Australia. If you are not performing forensic analysis or you are from another country, but you'd still like to participate, please contact us with some information about yourself and we will do our best to include you in this demo program.

Since Guardonix is built primarily for forensics, this demo program is not intended for professional data recovery companies. We offer a range of other tools specifically designed for data recovery ( ).

How the program works:

  1. Apply from this page.
  2. We will follow up with you within a week to let you know whether your application was approved and provide a rough time frame for your demo unit.
  3. You will receive an email with the tracking number a few days before your demo unit arrives.
  4. You will have a total of 10 business days (~2 weeks) to use the device. This time begins on the next business day after delivery.
  5. Once your 10 days are up, the unit will stop working and you will be asked to ship it directly to the next participant in line. As such, by signing up to this program you are consenting that your shipping information will be provided to one other participant. You can use any shipping service as long as it has a tracking number that you can provide to us as proof of shipment.
  6. Provide a short summary of your experience with it. It could simply be a private email sent directly to us or a post on social media, whatever you are comfortable with. We are looking for honest feedback on the device, i.e. what you liked about it, what you disliked, and what you'd like to see added/changed in the future.


The demo is free, but we will ask that you pay for shipping the demo device to the next participant after your 2 weeks are up.


You will receive a Guardonix Professional unit together with a SATA adapter, so this demo kit can handle USB or SATA storage devices, but not the latest PCIe SSDs. Should you wish to try out how it works on PCIe SSDs, you will need a suitable adapter that converts them to USB.

There is a lock in place that prevents the use of these demo units without an active internet connection. The demo license will expire in 10 business days, after which it will automatically become impossible to use the device. (Guardonix units that were purchased from us do not require internet and have an unlimited license.)

We hope you have a great experience with Guardonix!
