Drive Eraser and Dock for 2.5 / 3.5in SATA SSD / HDD - USB 3.0
Securely erase a SATA HDD/SSD without a host device, or dock your drive for easy access
Product ID: SDOCK1EU3P
Make the most of your SATA drives. This standalone eraser dock lets you erase your 2.5” and 3.5” solid-state drives or hard drives without connecting to a host computer, making it easy to re-use or re-purpose your SATA drive. For added peace of mind, the dock offers a printed confirmation when data has been securely erased.
The eraser dock also gives you a single-bay dock for your SATA drive with fast USB 3.0 performance, also known as USB 3.1 Gen 1 (5 Gbps).
Industry-recognized erase modes
Using industry-recognized erase modes, you can rest assured that the standalone eraser securely cleans, erases or sanitizes the data from your 2.5” or 3.5” SSD or HDD.
The eraser dock supports nine erase modes including Quick Erase, Single and Multi-pass Overwrites, Custom Erase, Secure Erase and Enhanced Secure Erase. The Multi-pass Overwrite (3-Pass Full Disk Overwrite) erase procedures meet the requirements of DoD (5220.22-M) standards.
Wipe sensitive data securely, confirmed with a printed receipt
The eraser dock lets you connect to an RS232 serial printer to print a record of the erase procedure and confirm that the erase has been successfully completed. This feature is ideal for IT technicians, system administrators or any departments needing confirmation when erasing sensitive or confidential information. For your reference, the printed receipt clearly shows you the time and date of erase, as well as the erase mode used.
Easy drive management and wide compatibility
For IT technicians or business professionals who need to check files or test different hard drives, the dock lets you hot-swap drives in and out as needed. The dock features a single SATA bay with a top-loading design for easy access to your drives, which makes it easy to quickly back-up or transfer data to a hard drive or solid-state drive.
With support for SATA I and II and large capacity drives (tested up to 6TB), this docking station is compatible with virtually any 2.5” and 3.5” SATA SSD or HDD drive.
The eraser dock also works with 2.5” and 3.5” IDE hard drives, mSATA drives and M.2 drives using a compatible StarTech.com adapter:

Frequently Asked Questions
Before You Buy
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.
This docking station allows the hard drive to enforce its own power state, as opposed to enforcing a power state that keeps the hard drive active at all times. Since most newer hard drives have low-power energy conservation modes, this will cause the hard drive to enter an idle state if it is not used for a certain amount of time.
The power and link LED on the hard drive eraser dock is illuminated while the drive is being erased. When the process is complete, the yellow LED is no longer illuminated.
The suggested time that the erase process will take is a conservative estimate based on the characteristics of the individual hard drive, including the maximum read and write speeds and overall health of the hard drive. The erase mode that you select can also impact the time it takes to erase the drive, as the more in-depth erase modes require more resources.
To connect your SDOCK1EU3P to your serial printer, use the same type of serial cable (straight-through or null modem) that you used to connect your serial printer to your computer. If you aren't sure which cable to use to connect your serial printer to your computer, consult the website of the serial printer manufacturer.
You should not upgrade your device's firmware if you do not have any issues with the functionality of your device. The only time you should consider an upgrade is if you are experiencing a problem with the device, and you have confirmed that the firmware addresses this problem. You can confirm this is the case by reviewing the documentation included with the firmware or by consulting with our Technical Support team. Incorrectly upgrading firmware can result in diminished performance so it is best to contact StarTech.com if you would like to perform this operation.
