Data copy king
Data Copy King is one disk image hardware,DoD data wipe hardware and also used as one professional forensic disk image tool.
Data Copy King has build-in IDE and SATA ports and supports USB data copy with adapters, it is one 1:1 hard drive duplicator. The top features of DCK is its claimed disk image speed at 7GB/min and data wipe speed at 8GB/min and its ability to copy bad sectors/unstable drives.
Background of Universal Hard drive duplicator
In the past, traditional hard drive duplicators and imaging tools can only copy good hard drives or drives with few bad sectors, most of them were designed without considering the data copy from unstable drives after head or platter swap or drives with a lot of bad sectors. If you use the traditional image tools to copy such unstable drives, the imaging process usually get stuck, the source drive stops working when only part of data is copied and other kind of imaging obstacles. At this time, you need to re-copy the data and reset the starting LBA value. The operators can not guarantee at all what and how much data has been copied, what has been omitted. The direct loss is your efficiency loss, data copy failure and even further damage to your data storage medias to cause permanent data loss.
Add-on of Universal Hard drive duplicator
Disk wipe tools are flooded in the data wiping market. As we all know, when we are using our hard disk drives, we always meet bad sectors, both logically and physically, sometimes, if your computers have a fall, there might be some slight scratches even if it's still detected in the bios, as time passes by, the bad sectors and scratches become more severe and your drives become undetected at that time. Before that deadly failure, we should perform effective data backup and wipe the disk for data security. But traditional disk image tools or hd duplicators can not copy and wipe the unstable drives with bad sectors or scratches at all, therefore, we need not only some new and powerful data copy solution but also strong disk wipe solution to wipe data on the unstbale sectors and slightly scratched drives. That's why Universal hard drive duplicators need also an add-on for disk wipe solutions.
Universal hard drive duplicator
1, 'Universal' indicates the storage medias from hard drives to flash drives, from good storage medias to storage medias with defects such as a lot of bad sectors, unstable heads or motor after head or platter swap, clicking drives but still detected in the bios or other kind of logical failure with detected status;
2, 'Universal' suggests a combination of multiple Data Copy related solutions such as drive health checking, data clean or data destruction;
3, 'Universal' means the wide use among different fields like data recovery field, IT after sale field, Education and training field, Government and miliary field, computer forensics field, Financial department field etc;
4, One important thing to mention about the 'Universal' here is the green concept used, no backdoor design, physical read only, 0 training required, friendly and nice interface, Energy-saving, cost effective, etc.
