StarTech.com’s SATDOCK22R Dual Drive SATA Hard Drive Duplicator offers standalone hard drive cloning, making it easy for users to create exact 1:1 copies of drive contents without having to install the hard drive in a computer
Groveport, OH - September 1, 2009 - StarTech.com, a leading manufacturer of hard-to-find connectivity and technology parts, today announced the release of the USB to SATA Standalone Hard Drive Duplicator Dock (SATDOCK22R), which can be used to make exact copies of SATA hard drive contents without having to connect to a host computer and also as a USB SATA HDD docking station.
Functioning as a hard drive duplicator, the SATDOCK22R can be used to clone or create exact 1:1 images of the contents of 2.5” or 3.5” SATA hard drives onto a second SATA hard drive; the unique standalone feature allows users to duplicate drives up to 2 TB in size without having to connect to a host desktop or laptop computer.
The Hard Drive Duplicator Dock offers sector by sector duplication, which creates an identical copy of the source drive on the destination drive. Unlike most drive imaging software, which is limited to working with certain file systems or drive structures, the duplicator dock functions regardless of drive contents (file system, type, security), making it a suitable solution for government agencies that are looking to duplicate sensitive/secure files.
In addition to hard drive cloning capability, the SATDOCK22R can be used as a conventional HDD docking station, allowing users to simply insert bare 2.5" or 3.5" SATA hard drives into the dock port for instant external connection to the host computer, without the use of an enclosure or the need to install the hard drive within a computer chassis.
“This product offers users versatility and convenience by providing the option of performing two very valuable functions” said Carey Cline, Senior Product Manager for StarTech.com. “Not only does the SATDOCK22R offer a very simple method of hard drive cloning as a standalone hard drive duplicator, but also the option to be used as a hard drive docking station, which is a real time-saver when access to drive contents is required without the hassle of installing the drive in an enclosure or in a computer.”<.p>
The SATDOCK22R USB to SATA Standalone Hard Drive Duplicator Dock also offers the following features:
- Easy to use hard drive eject button for each hard drive
- Support for high speed USB 2.0 connections to the host computer (up to 480Mbps)
- Built-in protection against drive short circuiting
- LED progress indicator for easy monitoring of drive cloning status
- Compact form factor design for space-conscious laptop or desktop environments
The USB to SATA Standalone Hard Drive Duplicator Dock is priced at $169 USD (MSRP), available directly from StarTech.com, and will be available for purchase from StarTech.com’s channel partners, including D&H, CDW, PC Connection and Insight, and distributors like Ingram Micro, Tech Data and SYNNEX in late September 2009.
