By default, the duplicator will initialize, scan for drives and offer the copy function. Insert the source and target drives, power up the unit, wait for the copy function to appear, then press ENT.
When selecting menu options, canceling is done by pressing ESC. When the unit is busy performing an operation such as copy, verify, or overwrite, the operation can be canceled by holding the ESC button until the unit beeps.
The duplicator has three menu sections: The Main menu, Setup Options, and Advanced Setup Options. Setup Options is accessed through the Main menu. Advanced Setup Options is accessed by holding the ESC button from any other menu until the unit beeps.
When the duplicator completes some of the functions it will record a log of the most recent activity. Select VIEW LOG from the Main Menu to review the latest function's results.
1. Copy HDD
Scans the ports, then copies from the source to any targets found.
2. Async Copy HDD
Scans the ports, then copies from the source to any targets found. More drives may be added before the process is complete, they will begin the process as soon as they are detected.
3. Compare HDD
Scans the ports, then any targets found will be compared to the source.
4. Async Compare
Scans the ports, then any targets found will be compared to the source. More drives to compare may be added before the process is complete, they will begin the process as soon as they are detected.
5. PreScan Source
Reads all blocks on the source drive to confirm no I/O errors are encountered.
6. ReScan BUS
Manually scans all ports and reports how many units were found.
7. Source Size
Examines the source drive and reports total space and space used, if drive contains compatible partitions. Press up/down to change display, ESC to exit.
8. Secure Erase
Scans all ports, then erases all data on all connected drives.
NOTE: some drives will remain in a locked state when the process is complete. Drives that are locked may not appear to an operating system and will cause an I/O error if used as a target in the duplicator. If this happens, start secure erase again and hold ESC to cancel the operation a few moments after it begins.
Overwrite is used to write data onto the entire hard disk, it will destroy all data on all HDDs connected to the duplicator (including Source HDD) by writing data to all sectors. There are 4
Enters the Setup menu. See Setup Options.
11. View Log
Shows the results from the most recent drive operation, such as copy, overwrite, etc.
12. Adv Setup
Enters the Advanced Setup Menu. Only available by holding ESC on any Main Menu option. See Advanced Setup Options.
Use this option to select the language of the system, currently only English is supported.
Controls how much of the source drive to use for copy operations, in percentage. Default setting is ALL (100%).
Sets the first menu option to appear after boot. Default setting is Copy HDD.
Controls whether or not targets are compared automatically when copy is complete. Default setting is OFF.
Enables audible beep when pressing buttons. Default setting is ON.
Displays information about connected drives. Main display is drive manufacturer and size. Press up/down to select drives, ENT to display model number and firmware revision of selected drive.
Displays firmware version and date.
When this setting is ON, the duplicator will attempt to copy the source drive's contents instead of the entire disk. Also controls Compare function. Default setting is OFF.
NOTE: Target drive size is still required to be equal to or greater than source. Only works with source drives formatted using Master Boot Record. If the source drive has a boot record other than MBR, the entire disk will be copied as if Fast Copy were OFF. If the source drive is formatted with a Master Boot Record and contains only FAT32 or NTFS partitions, identical partitions will be created on the target(s) and only the files will be copied. If the source drive with MBR format includes partitions other than FAT32 or NTFS, all sectors of all partitions (including FAT32 and NTFS) will be duplicated.
When source drive is present, inserting a target drive will cause copy process to begin automatically. Default setting is OFF.
Sets delay in time after target insertion before beginning auto copy process if Auto Start Drive is ON. Default setting is OFF (no delay).
Sets the minimum target size in percentage compared to the source that is allowed to use for copying. Default is 100% (equal in size).
NOTE: Leaving this setting at 100% or using for minor adjustments only is strongly recommended. Permitting target size less than source size may result in inaccurate copies.
This option is used to set boot delay time. Default setting is 5 seconds.
Sets Compare function to stop after a small amount of data has been verified, up to 100MBytes. Default setting is OFF.
Causes duplicate drive to report to an operating system the exact same total size as source when copy is complete. Works only on drives formatted using a Master Boot Record. Default setting is OFF.
Advanced Setup Options
