Overview

The SATDOCK22RE USB and eSATA Standalone Duplicator Dock lets you duplicate/clone an existing hard drive without the use of a host computer system, or can be connected to a computer system for use as an external hard drive dock.

As a hard drive duplicator, you can create an exact 1 to 1 sector clone from one hard drive to another, including partition and boot sector information and all data, at a rate of 72MB/second - ensuring data integrity and consistency for sensitive operations, such as data recovery.

As an external hard drive dock, the duplicator/dock supports plug-and-play installation and can be connected to your host computer through USB 2.0 or eSATA, providing data transfer speeds up to 480Mbps or 3Gbps respectively from the hard drives to your computer system. Large capacity drives (tested with up to 4TB 3.5" and 1TB 2.5" drives per bay) can be used to greatly enhance your computer's storage/backup capabilities.

Not having to install the hard drives into an enclosure or tray system allows for quick setups - a perfect solution for situations that require swapping through multiple drives, which combined with no driver or software installation requirements delivers a convenient and versatile storage solution. The value of this hard drive docking station can be extended, using a SATA to IDE hard drive adapter (SAT2IDEADP), which enables you to use any 2.5 or 3.5in IDE hard drive in a SATA hard drive dock slot.

The StarTech.com Advantage

  • Standalone cloning operation with LED progress indicator allows for creating 1:1 copies of hard drives without having to connect to a host computer.
  • On-the-fly switching from Duplicator to USB 2.0 or eSATA connectivity with the push of a button, allows a connected computer system to read/write to the drives.
  • A top slot-loading design and unique drive ejection mechanism provides quick and easy access to the data without having to install drives into an enclosure or tray.

Applications

  • Disk sector imaging/cloning to create an exact replica of a source drive onto a different drive.
  • Create identical backups for when data integrity is crucial, such as data recovery and forensic applications.
  • Technicians who require access to bare hard drives for backup/recovery purposes or needs to swap between drives regularly.
  • Quickly access data from a drive, without having to install it internally or into an enclosure.

Special Notes / Requirements
Note For duplication, the destination drive must be of equal or greater capacity than the source drive.

If the source drive contains an EISA (Extended Industry Standard Architecture) partition, the EISA partition needs to be removed prior to beginning the duplication.

eSATA operation with two hard drives installed, requires an eSATA host controller with Port Multiplier support.
