Product Description

The UNIDUPDOCK Universal SATA/IDE Dual Hard Drive Duplicator functions as both a convenient solid state (SSD) or hard drive (HDD) copying/imaging solution or an external SATA/IDE SSD or HDD docking station for 2.5in or 3.5in drives (SATA, SATA II, SATA III). Providing quick, yet complete hard drive cloning functionality, this universal dock can operate as a standalone HDD duplicator with no connection to a host computer, delivering an exact 1 to 1 clone of the target hard drive including partition and boot sector information, the Host Protected Area (HPA) as well as user data at a copy rate of 72 MB/sec. A built in LCD screen then allows for tracking the duplication progress , as well as reporting errors on the drives. Supporting both IDE and SATA, this universal duplicator dock enables duplication from SATA to SATA, IDE to SATA or SATA to IDE, and IDE to IDE, as long as the source drive does not exceed the size of the destination drive. Or the docking station can even be used to quickly erase hard drives, for reuse in the future. Functioning as a universal IDE and SATA HDD docking station, the hard drive duplicator can be connected to a computer through USB with support for simple plug-and-play installation, allowing users to access hard drive contents without having to mount in an external drive enclosure or open the computer case for conventional drive installation. Large capacity drives (tested with up to 4TB 3.5" and 1TB 2.5" drives per bay) can be used to greatly enhance your computer''s storage/backup capabilities. Contained in a small form factor design that makes it a suitable addition to desktop and laptop operating environments, this hard drive duplicator/external HDD docking station is a versatile storage and hard drive cloning utility that also features a host of other built in utilities that are accessible via a built in menu system.

When I first received this gadget, I thought it might be a dud, but eventually I figured out how to make it work.

First thing: When using IDE drives, make sure to set both drives' jumpers to "cable select" mode, rather than master or slave. That solved all my issues with the duplicator not detecting one or both drives.

Second, the source and destination really need to be the same size, and that's not necessarily just what's printed on the drive. I was trying to copy one 40GB IDE drive to several more of the same size, and it kept saying "Target drive not ready!" every time. To try troubleshooting, I connected both drives to my Mac via the USB cable supplied with the duplicator, and in Disk Utility I could see that my source drive was something like 37.9 GB while my target was 37.8. Oops. Different manufacturers etc. can mean a slight difference in the actual useable capacity of the drive.

Now, in that circumstance, if you still want to proceed, you can. This is kinda risky, but if you go into the duplicator's menu, under the "setup" option there is a place where you can specify the percentage to copy; I lowered it from 100% to 99% and then re-attempted the duplication, and it worked! Here's why: While the disks are 40GB capacity, the amount of actual data I'm copying is maybe 20GB (these are base Windows XP installs with 2 other apps, for a computer lab in a high school); and, in general, hard disks fill up from the beginning, so I gambled that the 1% shaved off the source would be unallocated data at the "end" of the drive. It seems to have worked (the target drives all boot and appear to function perfectly) but this is by no means a surefire strategy, since technically the OS can use any part of the disk and you could end up with an incomplete target.

As was previously indicated: "This item is total junk! Don't waste your time
and effort, avoid the frustration, look elsewhere."

To be more specific:
1. The unit when cloning IDE drives will only copy the first partition and stop,
i.e. It ignores all remaining partitions.
2. If the source and destination drives are totally identical, i.e. Both the same
capacity, model, & manufacturer, the unit will 'hang' (no copying) and must be
reset or turned off/on to again access the menus.
3. The display has poor contrast and is difficult to read off angle. During the
copying process, the display is basically unreadable, i.e. To determine the status
of the copying (percent completion & time remaining).
4. The unit is incompatible with solid state drives, i.e. It won't identify/find SSDs.

No tests were done with SATA drives, but most likely the same problems will
occur as the application firmware is most likely the same for both IDEs and SATAs.
For copying IDE drives, a better choice is to use a software application than this
unit even though potentially more involved. At least then the drive will be copied
properly. Other/better hardware options exist for just copying SATA drives.

Like previously mentioned, a zero star would be most appropriate if available!

Update:

Returned the unit to Startech Customer Service (great support) and received
another unit. This unit had a good readable display at all viewing angles.
It was able to copy all of the multiple partitions. It was also able to detect
an IDE SSD, once the drive jumper set the drive as the master, and do a copy.
A SATA SSD drive copying was successful too. An updated rating of 5 based on
support and functionality is appropriate now.

Verified Purchase
My Laptop was getting on in age and I have been battling space on the 60 GB drive. Expecting the Toshiba to crash and lose my data and software. I didn't want to spend the time to reload everything and redo the software setup. I had read about the hard drive duplicator in Smart Computing so I had a good expectation of what I was getting. The duplicator came well packaged and is quite small. The manual left a little to be desired. I had downloaded a manual and description prior to this so I knew that some of the basic information was missing. I purchased a 250GB replacement drive and was a little confused about the hookup but after rereading the manuals I figured out that the Laptop 2 1/2" drive did not need a separate power connection. The power cord goes to one of the connectors. Turned on the duplicator and it came up with a menu for basic processes. I pushed the button to duplicate and it performed just like it was advertised giving a full digital readout as it progressed. It completed the task and I was expecting it to tell me to power off and remove the drives. It didn't and as a result I accidentally restarted the whole process again. No problem other than it took twice as long as it should have. The manual does not tell you what to do when the duplication has been completed. I found out that the duplicator only duplicates the original 60GB drive and does not include the remaining hard disk space into a single drive. When I inserted the new drive into the laptop it showed only the 60GB C drive and the remaining space did not show up. I then went to my MS tools and found out that the space was not formatted and that you needed to make it a drive. I found out latter by Goggling that the extra space can be incorporated into the existing drive by using the command prompt.Read more ›
