StarTech USB Duplicator & Eraser Doesn’t Need a PC to Lobotomize Flash Drives

Do you frequently need to transfer or back up data from USB drives? Are you a spy? Well if you’re not one, what kind of job requires you to do that? Whatever it is you do, StarTech has a gadget that could serve you well. It can copy data from a USB drive and transfer it to up to two other USB drives simultaneously. And it can do that on its own, there’s no need to hook it up to a computer.

The Flash Drive Duplicator and Eraser can copy just the data stored in a USB drive or it can make a clone of the entire drive. The second feature is useful if you’re copying up a bootable back-up drive or a disk image. As its name implies, the device can also erase data from up to two USB drives at the same time using either a quick erase method or a slower, but more secure way that supposedly follows a standard set by the US Department of Defense. I feel ashamed that I don’t have any data that merits that kind of sophisticated death.

Aside from transferring data to a flash drive, you can also use the device to transfer data to a hard drive, a solid state drive and other storage devices like memory cards as long as you have the proper USB enclosure or reader for your storage device. What I don’t know is if you can use those storage media as a source drive. You can order one from Amazon for about $171 (USD). Head to StarTech’s website for more information.
