Cloning stations are the ideal gadget for system builders, integrators, technicians and IT departments. This neat little device also acts as an external hard drive for 2.5″ and 3.5″ SATA hard disks as well as handy cloning station. It allows you to easily create bit by bit clones (including OS and Partitions) from original drives onto target HDDs. It is the easiest way to upgrade to larger capacity hard drives.
The great standalone cloner allows drives to be cloned without a computer. That ease of use is great for IT techs and upgraders. A useful docking function means blank drives up to 2TB can be connected to a computer via eSATA (3Gbps) or USB 2.0 (480Mbps). Recovering data and backing up files can be done simply, without much effort or the need for installation. The dual bay design allows two hard drives to be connected at the same time so data can be copied between multiple drives of different types as 2.5″ and 3.5″ SATA drives are supported natively.
