5.0 out of 5 stars Inateck Cloning & Docking Station FDU3C-2., 10 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Inateck Dual Two Bays USB 3.0 Hard Drives External Docking Station Support Online and Offline Clone Function for 2.5 Inch & 3.5 Inch HDD SSD SATA (SATA I/ II/ III) Support 2 x 4TB, Including USB 3.0 Cable and External Power Supply 12V 4A, Comaptible with Windows XP / Vista / 7/8 / Mac OS 10.8.4 [ Tool-free, Black ] (Electronics)
This is an excellent device.
I have a Dell desktop PC nearly 5 years old, which is still running well but the hard drive was showing signs of wear when monitored.
I used the Inateck (offline clone) to clone the 500GB hard drive onto a new 640GB drive, which when inserted into the PC now works perfectly.
The old drive can also still be accessed if necessary using the Inatek Docking function to USB.

I think that the Instruction Manual could be improved with a little more advice about the indicator lights on start-up and with some information about approximate time required to clone discs; such as :-
- Load source in bay A, target in bay B, turn on power.
- Power light and both bay indicator lights should be on. If not, switch off and check the seating of the disks in the connector sockets, then try again.
- Press and hold the clone button for about 3 seconds until the indicator light comes on. Then release the clone button and re-press quickly before the indicator light goes off. The 25% light should then start flashing immediately showing that cloning has started OK.

The time taken to clone my 500GB disk was about 1 hour 50 minutes.
