1:9 2.5" HDD/SSD HS Duplicator (HD925HS)

Discontinued and replaced by HU925HSDHS

The Addonics family of 2.5" duplicator is an economical hard drive duplicator solution with choice of models for copying from three up to as many as eleven 2.5" SATA hard drive or SSD. There is no computer needed or complex software to operate. Just open the doors on the drive bays, load your master hard drive to the source bay and other hard drives of capacity equal or larger into the target bays, lock the drive doors and push the start button to start the copying process.

About This Model

The HD925HS is the latest High Speed 1:9 2.5" SATA HDD or SSD duplicator that maintains fast copying speed when duplicating from one to nine drives. Designed with snap-In drive bay, drives are easily added or removed fwithout any special tool, just like an ordinary cassette tape.

Notes:

  1. requires additional Diamond IDE drive enclosure (model: DISCSB) for each target drive
  2. requires 2.5" to 3.5" IDE connector converter (AA25IDE35) for each target drive
  3. requires additional Diamond Cipher SATA drive enclosure (model: DCSACS256) in conjunction with your encryption key for each source or target drive. Please check the detail of the Diamond Cipher product at Diamond Cipher overview page if you are not familiar with this option.
    Data copied to a target drive inside the Diamond Cipher enclosure will be encrypted with AES 256-bit security. Data in the drive will not be accessible when remove from the drive enclosure. You can only access the encrypted data
    When Diamond Cipher enclosure is used as source, only hard drive that has been encrypted with the Addonics AES 256-bit encryption should be used. If an non-encrypted hard drive is placed inside the Diamond Cipher drive enclosure and use as a source drive, no data will be copied as the drive will appear as a blank drive to the duplicator.
  4. requires 1 additional Snap-In 25 (model: AE25SN35SA) unit for each target drive
  • Copy up to nine 2.5" SATA hard drives or SSD
  • Great for cloning hard drives, making back up hard drives, system upgrade or data distribution
  • High performance with minimum performance degradation from duplicating one to 9 drives 

    typical copying speed*
    1 drive 3 drive > 5 drives
    ~ 105 MB/sec ~87 MB/sec ~87 MB/sec
  • Compact size and light weight for easy transportation
  • Support any file system
  • Support any 2.5" SATA hard drive or SSD with thickness up to 12.7 mm
  • Maximum drive size >3TB
  • Source and Destination drives are added or removed like tape cartridges from each drive bay with no special tool required
  • 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 (diagram of duplicator features can be here Full LCD console feature list)
  • Operate as a stand alone appliance. No computer or software needed

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 targetThe transfer rate varies depending on the speed of the source and destination drive

  • Writing mode: Sector to Sector
  • Typical copying speed

1:9 High Speed HDD duplicator firmware
Applies to: HDU9SASHS, HD925HS, HD9SNDXHS, HD9SITDRHS

firmware verison 1.61S

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

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
