Duplicate or dock a SATA SSD/HDD with fast performance - works with both USB-C and USB-A enabled devices
Product ID: SDOCK2U313R
Duplicate drives quickly, at rates of up to 28GB per minute for SSDs, without having to connect to your computer. This duplicator dock offers standalone drive cloning that makes it easy to back up your data and make exact images of your drives. You can also connect the dock to your computer through USB 3.1 (10Gbps), to dock and swap your drives as part of a scalable storage solution.
Clone your drives at high speed
Duplicating a hard drive or solid-state drive is an effective way to migrate your operating system and data from one drive to another, or create an exact copy for safeguarding your important data. This drive duplicator lets you create a sector-by-sector clone of your drive, including partitions and boot sector information, to ensure data integrity and consistency for sensitive operations such as data recovery.
The duplicator dock saves you valuable time with SSD duplication speeds of up to 28GB per minute. You can duplicate a 2.5” or 3.5” SATA SSD or HDD easily, without having to connect the duplicator to a host computer.
Transfer files quickly between the dock and your PC
The duplicator dock also provides an external storage solution, letting you dock your drives through USB 3.1 Gen 2 with UASP support, enabling fast data transfer rates of up to 10Gbps. Each drive slot individually supports a high-capacity hard drive or solid-state drive, tested up to 6 TB.
Includes two USB cables for versatility
The duplicator dock comes with two USB cables for flexible use with the latest laptops and tablets equipped with a USB-C™ port, as well as legacy devices. It includes both USB-C to B and USB-A to B cables. The duplicator dock is also compatible with a Thunderbolt™ 3 USB-C port.
Designed for easy use
The dock features a top-loading, toaster-style design that makes it easy to insert your drives. It also features drive doors to help stabilize drives that are inserted into the slot and prevent foreign objects from getting into the drive slots.
Both tool-less and tray-less, the duplicator dock helps to ensure quick and hassle-free drive insertions. LED indicators let you know, at a glance, the current state of the duplication process, including the specific duplication mode, the HDD status and clone progress. The HDD ejection button enables fast and simple drive removal.
For added compatibility with different drive types in duplication and docking applications, the SDOCK2U33RE supports the use of various drive adapters. The below list of StarTech.com adapters have been specifically tested, to ensure compatibility with this drive duplicator:

Frequently Asked Questions
Before You Buy
Yes, this device supports the TRIM command. If the OS issues a TRIM command, the command will be passed to the connected device.
StarTech.com hard drive and flash drive duplicators perform a sector by sector copy, which means that the target drive must be the exact same size (down to the sector) or larger than the hard drive or flash drive that is being copied. During a sector by sector copy, each individual sector is copied over to the target drive, regardless of whether or not any data is present. A 500 GB hard drive with 50 GB of data on it will take the same amount of time to copy as a 500 GB hard drive with 450 GB of data on it.
If you have two hard drives or flash drives that are listed as the same size but are different makes or models, you need to check how large both drives are down to the sector to ensure that the target drive is is the exact same size or larger.
Solid-state drives (SSDs) use SATA connectors to access power and transfer data. Any duplicator that can copy to or from SATA hard drives will work with a StarTech.com duplicator.
Note: If you use a dock to duplicate SSDs, keep in mind that the StarTech.com disk duplicators execute a sector by sector read and write. SSDs are rated by a number of reads and writes. Repeated duplication and sector by sector reads and writes of SSDs can reduce the life cycle of the drive.
Software-level encryption on the drive poses no issue to StarTech.com duplicators, as the duplicators copy encrypted data sector by sector over to the new drive.
Hardware-level encryption or BIOS level hard drive locks cause the duplication to halt and fail, as the drive is unable to read or write the sectors that are encrypted.
Duplication of Hidden Protected Area (HPA) Partitions or Extended Industry Standard Architecture (EISA) cause the duplicator to halt and fail, as the drive cannot read and write the protected partitions on the drive.
Note: Our UNIDUPDOCK, SATDOCK22RE and SATDOCK4U3RE do include the ability to copy HPA partitions, but the duplication is still dependent on how the HPA partition is written to the hard drive, whether or not it is encrypted and how it is encrypted.
StarTech.com duplicators were not designed to recover failing or damaged drives. If the duplicator encounters a corrupt or unreadable sector, the duplication halts and fails.
SATDOCK4U3RE, SATDUP13 ,and UNIDUPDOCK all include a function that allows the duplicators to skip over corrupt or unreadable sectors. However, if the duplicators encounter too many errors, they still halt and fail. If this happens, you will need third-party recovery software or custom-built recovery hardware to copy from a failing or damaged drive.
To determine if your hard drive will work in this device, on the product page, click the Technical Specifications tab, and do the following:
- Make sure that the device supports the storage size of your hard drive. If the storage size of your hard drive is larger than what the device was tested with, the hard drive will likely still work with the enclosure.
- Confirm that your hard drive uses the same interface type as the device. For example, IDE, SATA, or M.2.
- Make sure that the device supports the physical size of your hard drive, such as 2.5 inches or 3.5 inches.
- Verify that the power consumption of your hard drive doesn’t exceed the power output of the device. If you’re using multiple hard drives, make sure that the combined power consumption of all of the hard drives doesn’t exceed the power output of the docking station.
USB 3.1 is the most recent version of the USB (Universal Serial Bus) standard for connecting computers and electronic devices. It is capable of data transfer speeds up to 10Gbps, and while it can use the USB-C connector type, it can also use a variety of other connector types. To achieve USB 3.1 transfer speeds, your USB host connection, cables, and device must all support USB 3.1. USB 3.1 is also known as USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10Gbps).
USB 3.0 is capable of data transfer speeds up to 5Gbps. USB 3.0 is also known as USB 3.1 Gen 1 (5Gbps).
USB 3.1 is backwards compatible with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0, except in the following scenarios:
- USB-B 3.1 cables are not compatible with USB-B 2.0 ports.
- Unless you use an adapter, USB-C ports or cables will not work with USB-A or USB-B ports or cables.
- Devices that require USB 3.1 transfer speeds of 10Gbps might not work with USB 3.0 or USB 2.0, or you might experience lower transfer speeds and impacted performance.
- Bus-powered USB devices that requires more power than what USB 2.0 can provide are not compatible with USB 2.0.
To transfer data at speeds of 10Gbps, you need to confirm that the following components in your setup support USB 3.1:
- The USB host connection
- The USB cable
- The USB device and any subcomponents (for example, a hard drive docking station and the hard drives in the docking station)
Note: USB 3.1 is also known as USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10Gbps). Devices that support USB 3.1 should have the USB 3.1 symbol on them. If the USB 3.1 symbol does not appear on your USB source or device, refer to the information provided by the manufacturer to confirm whether the USB source or device support USB 3.1.
The included USB cable for this USB 3.1 Gen 2 device has been tested and verified to perform at USB 3.1 Gen 2 speeds of 10Gbps.
