Product Highlights
  • Duplicate or Erase Hard Disks
  • Compatible with SATA Drives
  • Standalone Operation

The 1:5 HDD Cruiser Hard Disk Drive Sanitizer and Duplicator from Aleratec is a standalone device that can be used to copy or erase SATA hard disk drives. The unit features a sanitizer function, which can permanently erase data from up to 6 disks at once. Its Secure Erase function is up to 90% faster than traditional overwrite methods.

Users who would prefer to use traditional overwrite methods to erase data will be happy to discover that the unit offers three methods -- a one-pass wipe, a three-pass wipe with verification, and a seven-pass wipe that meets Department of Defense standards. Proper hard drive sanitization is essential for compliance with FACTA, GLB, HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, and other governmental regulations.

The HDD Cruiser also features a duplicator function, which can be used to simultaneously create 5 copies from a single master disk. It is compatible with 3.5" SATA hard disk drives; an optional adapter to mount 2.5" drives is available. Each of its bays features non-scratch SATA connectors rated for 50,000 swap cycles.

    Comments about Aleratec 1:5 HDD Cruiser Hard Disk Drive Sanitizer and Duplicator:

    I've already used it for wiping HDD's and duplicating them. I'm pleased with it's performance. However, for the cost it should be built a little more solid. The bay doors are a light weight plastic that feel like they might just snap off if you look at them wrong.

    Overall I recommend it.
