Hard drive duplication for the consumer is typically done one at a time in the event that you move from an old computer to a new one or your hard drive crashes. In some business areas, the duplication of optical discs, HDDs, and flash drives is done on a larger scale and needs hardware that is more specialized.
Aleratec has announced a new budget portable HDD duplicator system called the HDD Copy Cruiser Mini Hard Disk Drive Duplicator and Dock for the consumer. The device is a 1:1 copy system that can copy 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch SATA I and II drives.
The device is easy to use and the user only needs to insert the source and target drives into the dock and press the start button. The source drive will be copied to the new drive at 72MB/sec in a process that includes the disk partition and boot sector resulting in an exact clone of your original drive. The device is available now for $169.99.
