This Addonics Mini HDD Duplicator Station is a feature rich storage device. It is designed to be used as a simple 1:1 HDD/SSD duplicator or as a fast USB 3.0 docking device for up to two SATA hard drives. It comes in a very small foot print, about the size of a Desktop computer power supply, and operates silently without any cooling fan.
As a 1:1 HDD/SSD duplicator, simply insert the master hard drive into the SOURCE slot and the destination drive to the TARGET slot, press the CLONE button and the duplication process starts automatically. All the content, including boot sector and partition table, on the master drive will be copied onto the destination drive sector by sector. The SOURCE and the TARGET drive slots are designed to accomodate standard 3.5" or 2.5" SATA hard drive or Addonics family of 2.5" Flash drive. There is no special tool required to install the drive.
As a fast USB 3.0 docking station, the two drives in the SOURCE and TARGET drive slots can be connected to any computer via the SuperSpeed USB 3.0 port or the High Speed USB 2.0 port. The drives will appear as two individual drives to the computer. Each drive can be removed and new drive can be added to the drive slot without the need to restart the computer, similar to using the VHS cassette. There is also a BACKUP button that works in unison with the bundled backup software to conveniently make a copy of all your important data onto one of the two hard drives installed in this docking station.
