Hard drives have been undergoing various technological improvements since it was first introduced over 30 years ago. In many large organizations, it’s common to find hard drives with either IDE or SATA interfaces in both 2.5” or 3.5” form factors as well as solid state drives that are used as ordinary hard drives. With this in mind, it’s important that a hard drive duplicator is capable of supporting all different kinds of hard drives. Such a duplicator, besides making a duplicate copy of data onto another hard drive, can also be a useful tool for migrating data or even the entire Operating System from older hard drives to newer hard drives.

Some duplicators can also be used as sanitizing equipment to wipe clean all previous data stored in an old hard drive.
This is a necessary precautionary process to clean up all sensitive data before recycling old hard drives.
 

Examples of Different Uses For Duplicators:

  • Drive Cloning
  • Hard Drive Backup
  • Data Migration
  • Drive Upgrade
  • Computer Production
  • Data Distribution
  • Drive Sanitization
 
The Addonics family of hard drive duplicators are simple, fast and reliable tools for making exact copies of any hard drive. Designed in various configurations to meet wide range of applications, Addonics duplicator can be used for copying from source drives of any type from 2.5" to 3.5" hard
drive or SSD with either SATA or IDE interface, to target drives of any kind. This flexibility makes Addonics hard drive duplicators powerful tools for quick data migration between different storage types. For applications where data encryption is needed, there are models that enable copying with AES-256 bit hardware encryption.

Operating as a stand alone appliance without connecting to any computer, all Addonics hard drive duplicators are extremely easy to operate. Load the source hard drive into the top bay and another hard drive of equal or larger capacity into the bottom bay, then push the start button to start the copying process. There is no special software required or any complicated set up procedures.

Data Security and Drive Sanitizing
All PRO models come with the option to use the Diamond Cipher Drive Enclosure as the target drive to copy data onto the hard drive inside it. The data is automatically secured with AES 256-bit encryption. In addition, used hard drives can be sanitized by the Diamond Cipher Drive Enclosure to make the hard drive appear brand new after the copying process.
