New Flash Drive Duplicator Clones or Erases USB Flash Drives with No Computer Connection Required

Portable, standalone duplicator lets users simultaneously copy data or the entire volume from one USB flash drive to two flash drives, or securely erase data from multiple flash drives, without having to connect the drives or the duplicator to a host computer system

Lockbourne, OH - March 18, 2013 - StarTech.com, a leading manufacturer of hard-to-find connectivity parts, has announced the release of a portable USB Flash Drive Duplicator (SKU: USBDUP12), which enables users to simultaneously clone a single flash drive onto two individual flash drives, or erase two flash drives, without having to connect the duplicator or the drives to a computer.

The duplicator provides the option to copy an exact image of the entire source drive volume, or just the data from the flash drive, to two other flash drives at speeds up to 1.5GB per minute. The high-performance duplicator also features an integrated LCD display and LED indicators, which simplify monitoring the operating status and progress while cloning or erasing is being performed.
