You can make a forensic image of anything. The issue is whether you will change the source or not.

Very good point and always something to consider.


Why do you not want to use a write blocker gabez?

I am going to take a shot in the dark and guess that this is either a question from an assignment or they are wanting to make a forensically sound image and they don't have a write blocker. Either way it is possible but you had better know exactly what you are doing before you try it.
