Aleratec Introduces Dual Function 1:4 Hard Disk Drive Duplicator and Docking Station



Serving as a Standalone SATA Hard Disk Drive Duplicator and a 5-Bay Docking Station, Aleratec’s New 1:4 HDD Copy Dock USB 3.0 Basic Copies Four Hard Disk Drives Simultaneously and Offers Easy Access to Five Hard Disk Drives at Once.



Chatsworth, CA - April 30, 2013 – Aleratec Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of professional-grade duplicators for hard disk drives, USB flash drives, flash memory and optical discs, introduced the 1:4 HDD Copy Dock Basic USB 3.0, a 5-Bay 2.5”/3.5” SATA HDD USB 3.0 Duplicator and Docking Station. The unit dramatically simplifies the labor-intensive chore of accessing, cloning and backing up hard disk drives and also functions as a high-speed hard drive dock.



Similar in design to the company's popular 1:1 HDD Copy Dock USB 3.0 (part number 350123), the 1:4 HDD Copy Dock Basic USB 3.0 expands hard disk duplication to four and accesses five drives at once when used as a docking station. "We took all the features customers loved about our 1:1 Copy Dock and created a unit that can do even more," notes Perry Solomon, Aleratec President and CEO. "Whether you're an IT professional or computer enthusiast, the 1:4 HDD Copy Dock Basic will make cloning and accessing hard disk drives a lot easier and a lot faster."



The Aleratec 1:4 HDD Copy Dock Basic USB 3.0 is compatible with Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7/8, Linux, and Mac OS10.3 or later. Other key features include:



  • Sector-by-sector standalone cloning to up to 4 targets;
  • Simple, one-button clone operation;
  • Progress bar for monitoring status; and
  • HDD access by USB 3.0 or USB 2.0


  • The unit does not require a computer to operate and is very simple to operate, needing only a single button to begin cloning. Sector-by-sector copies, including partition and boot sector information, result in perfect hard drive clones and backups, while an easy-to-read progress bar monitors the status. Access to up to five drives is practically effortless. Users simply need to connect the unit to a PC or Mac via a USB 2.0 or via the included SuperSpeed USB 3.0 cable and flip a switch.



    The 1:4 HDD Copy Dock Basic USB 3.0 is ready to use right out of the box with no additional software required.
