Zebra HDD Duplicator

The Zebra HDD Duplicator is a powerful hard drive duplicating device in a small package. Designed to connect hard drive via the eSATA connection, any 2.5" or 3.5" hard drive or SSD, including large volume of storage created from a hardware Port Multiplier, can become the source or the target drive. When use in combination with the optional Addonics SATA Exdrive kit. practically any hard drive or SSD, IDE or SATA from 2.5" to 3.5" can becomes the source or the target drive. The Zebra HDD Duplicator is a handy tool for wide range of application - field service, drive cloning, data back up, migrate data between different type of drives and many others. It is also a useful sanitization tool to wipe clean old data in used hard drive.

  • Copy any eSATA hard drive or SSD to any eSATA hard drive or SSD
  • Great for cloning hard drives, making a back up hard drive or a RAID volume
  • Support any type of file format, including an entire RAID volume
  • Maximum drive size >3TB
  • Completely standalone One to One hard drive duplicator with no additional hardware or software required.
  • Typical copying speed1 ~ 85 MB/sec
  • Source and Destination hard drives are connected via high speed eSATA connection externally
  • 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
      • Encryption - requires optional Diamond Cipher drive enclosure*
  • LCD console with intuitive interface and information display.
  • Full LCD console feature list

 

* Drive Sanitization using encryption is limited to SATA hard drive. Requires optional Diamond Cipher drive enclosure and Diamond encryption key

  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
  • 2 eSATA ports to connect source and destination drives with eSATA interface
  • 1 rear mounted cooling fan
  • Power supply: 80 watts Max
  • Dimensions (W x D x H): ~7.5 x 10.5 x 6.5 inch 
  • Weight: ~3.5lb
  • Writing mode : Sector to Sector
  • Support up to 1.5Gbps transferring rate
  • Operating environment: 0 - 50 degree C, 15% - 90% RH
  • Storage environment: (- 20) - (65) degree C, 0% - 95% RH non-condensing

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
