The Aleratec 1:11 HDD Copy Cruiser IDE/SATA is a powerful, standalone hard drive duplicator that can create 11 clone hard drives simultaneously. It can also securely wipe all the data from up to twelve hard disk drives at a time with Secure Erase or a choice of three comprehensive sanitization algorithms: a one-pass wipe, a three-pass wipe with verify, or a powerful seven-pass wipe as recommended by the Department of Defense 5220.22-M specification. The unit is compatible with 3.5-Inch internal IDE and SATA hard disk drives, as well as 2.5-Inch SATA drives. It is also compatible with 2.5-Inch internal IDE drives, mSATA SSDs, Compact Flash (CF) Cards, CFast Cards and 1.8-Inch MicroSATA SSDs with Aleratec adapters (part numbers 350116, 350118, 350119, 350120, 350122), not included. For the ultimate in flexibility, the unit can copy from either a SATA or an IDE source drive to any combination of SATA and IDE targets. The 1:11 HDD Copy Cruiser IDE/SATA performs a sector-by-sector copy from a single source hard disk to up to eleven target drives, regardless of brand, operating system or format of the drives. The copy includes partition and boot sector information for a perfect clone. Responsible organizations and individuals understand that the sensitive, private data on their disposed or redeployed hard disk drives are vulnerable if those drives are not properly sanitized. The 1:11 HDD Copy Cruiser IDE/SATA these efforts by offering overwrite sanitization, up to and including DoD recommended levels, as well as Secure Erase. Secure Erase is a National Institute of Standards and Technology 800-88 accepted technique for properly purging hard drives. This method is supported by almost all modern SATA, and some IDE, hard disk drives. It also works up to 60% faster than a one-pass overwrite and up to 90% faster than a 7-pass overwrite.
