Product Info

Clone any combination of 2.5in or 3.5in IDE or SATA hard drives

The UNIDUPDOCK Universal SATA/IDE Dual Drive Hard Drive Duplicator functions as both a convenient hard drive copying/imaging solution and an external SATA/IDE HDD docking station for 2.5in (up to 500Gb) or 3.5in SATA/SATA II hard drives (up to 2 TB).

Providing quick, yet complete hard drive cloning functionality, this universal dock can operate as a standalone HDD duplicator with no connection to a host computer, delivering an exact 1 to 1 clone of the target hard drive including partition and boot sector information as well as user data at a copy rate of 72 MB/sec.

Supporting both IDE and SATA, this universal duplicator dock enables duplication from SATA to SATA, IDE to SATA or SATA to IDE, and IDE to IDE, as long as the source drive does not exceed the size of the destination drive.

Functioning as a universal IDE and SATA HDD docking station, the hard drive duplicator can be connected to a computer through USB with support for simple plug-and-play installation, allowing users to access hard drive contents without having to mount in an external drive enclosure or open the computer case for conventional drive installation.

A versatile storage and hard drive cloning utility, the hard drive duplicator/external HDD docking station features a small form factor design that makes it a suitable addition to desktop and laptop operating environments.
