HDD Duplicator PRO (HDUSI325)

Discontinued and replaced by model HDUSI325I-A


The Addonics 1:1 HDD Duplicator PRO is one of the most powerful hard drive copying tools that you can find in the market. Operating stand alone without any computer or special software, any type of 2.5" or 3.5" hard drive or SSD can be duplicated onto any 2.5" or 3.5" hard drive or SSD that has either SATA or IDE interface. With the addition of an optional Diamond Cipher drive enclosure, the exact content on any hard drive or SSD can be quickly copied onto a 3.5" or 2.5" SATA drive with bullet proof AES-256 bit hardware encryption. Such flexibility makes this HDD Duplicator PRO a perfect tool for any organization that has a wide mix of hard drives in various form factors and interface and for quick transfer of OS or data onto different type of hard drives.

The HDD 1:1 Duplicator PRO is also simple to use and operate. Just open the doors on the two drive bays, load your master hard drive to the drive bay on top and another hard drive of capacity equal or larger than the master drive to the bottom drive bay, turn the key lock to the lock position and push the start button to start the copying process.

Besides the duplicating function, the Addonics duplicator is also a convenient drive sanitization tool to wipe clean any sensitive data stored on the hard drive. You can sanitize both source and target drives all at one time using the SECURE ERASE or  the OVERWRITE function up to 7 passes to meet the DoD standard.

  • Typical copying speed1 ~ 85 MB/sec
  • Drive can be mounted onto removable drive enclosure without special tool
  • Maximum drive size >3TB
  • Source and Destination drives are added or removed like tape cartridges via a removable drive enclosure
  • Add AES-256 bit encryption capability to source or target with optional Diamond Cipher drive enclosure (model: DCSACS256) for :
      • Copying data directly onto an AES-256 bit encrypted hard drive for data security
      • As a tool to sanitize used hard drives*
  • Drive sanitization:
      • SECURE ERASE - HDD duplicator sends a WIPE command to the hard drive. This command fills 00 string to entire HDD
      • OVERWRITE - One pass, 3 passes and 7 passes 5220.22-M.  The duplicator writes a string of pattern over the entire disk one time, three times or seven times.5220.22-M is the DoD standard for drive sanitization
  • LCM control module provides a rich set of robust advanced configuration options (click Full LCD console feature list to see a complete list of this duplicator functions
  • Operate as a stand alone appliance. No computer or software needed

 

* Drive Sanitization (limited to SATA hard drive only)
The Diamond Cipher drive enclosure can also be used as a drive sanitization equipment for wiping clean of all previous data on an used hard when used in conjunction with any Addonics Duplicator PRO model:

  1. install the hard drive to be sanitized into the Diamond Cipher drive enclosure.
  2. Insert the Diamond Cipher drive enclosure into one of the Diamond target bays
  3. Start the copying process using a blank source drive of equal size in capacity as the target drive. Data from the source drive is then written onto the hard drive in the Diamond Cipher drive enclosure with AES-256 bit encryption.
  4. Now remove the drive from the Diamond Cipher enclosure. The drive will appear as brand new drive when installed into any computer with no trace of any data. The drive will have to be initialized, partitioned and formatted.

1. The speed here is for reference only. The speed were measured basing on using 3.5" SATA III 250 GB hard drive for both source and target. The transfer rate varies depending on the speed of the source and destination drive 

  • Writing mode : Sector to Sector
  • Typical copying speed ~ 85 MB/sec

Drivers
All 1:1 HDD Duplicators Firmware 1.35H
Applies to: HDUS325DX, HDUSI325, HDUSI325AES, ZHDUESA, HDUSAS

Current firmware version number: 1.35H

This firmware update fixes the following issues:

  1. Version:1.23H   
    - Support Fast copy function.(FAT/FAT32/NTFS/EXT2/EXT3/Swap)
    - Modified: Change the Fast Copy switch name form Yes/No change to On/Off.
    - Modified: Change the target drive not enough space string.
    - Modified: Change the LCD display of Copy HDD / Compare HDD/Prescsn Source progress time by increasing numbers.
  2. Version:1.35H   
    - Add support for drive size 2TB and larger
    - Fixed Bug that COMPARE HDD is different when 28bit and 48bit HDD finished copy action.
    - Improved 28bit HDD overwrite speed.
    - Added Overwrite function(One pass/Three pass/Seven pass) using DoD standard 5220.22-M
    - Added Secure erase function.

Firmware update procedure (Requires one hard drive containing the firmware file):

  1. Create a 50MB HDD partition with FAT/FAT32 or NTFS files system on any SATA hard drive
  2. Download the firmware and unzip the file to .BIN file format
  3. Copy the .BIN file onto the 50 MB partition of the HDD
  4. Insert this drive to the Source slot of the duplicator. For subsystem, connect the drive to the Source SATA port
  5. Select "Firmware Update" function under the "Setup" or "Advanced Setup" menu and press ENT to do the update. To access the "Advanced Setup", hold onto the ESC button for 5 seconds. The new option will appear
  6. Once completed, it will reboot and show you the new firmware version

Notes for the new firmware:

  • Added drive sanitization feature using the SECURE ERASE and OVERWRITE functions. The new functions are found under the Advance set up menu. These two functions apply to both source and target drive when the drives are present.  
  • SECURE ERASE - HDD duplicator sends a WIPE command to the hard drive. This command fills 00 string to entire HDD
  • OVERWRITE - There are three options: One pass, 3 passes and 7 passes 5220.22-M.  The duplicator writes a string of pattern over the entire disk one time, three times or seven times. (5220.22-M is the DoD standard for drive sanitization)

Please note that some drives may become locked and cannot be initialized after the SECURE ERASE or OVERWRITE. Should this happen, use the following procedures to unlock the drive:

  1. Place drive in the source slot
  2. Execute "PreScan" function for 1 minute
  3. Press "ESC" key until you see "User Abort" on the LCD screen
  4. Now remove the drive from the duplicator and connect it to your system, the HDD should be recognized and be able to initialize again
