SuperCopier IT 8" SAS Portable Drive Duplicator Unit with No Expansion

Download Brochure


The SuperCopier IT 8″ SAS unit is a portable, 4 SAS/SATA ports, low cost, no expansion drive duplicator that supports cloning 1:3, 2:2 SAS/SATA drives and many USB3.1 storage devices. The unit is compact, easy to carry, and easy to use with very simple and clear touchscreen icons. The operations are extremely fast and efficient, with very high transfer rates. The SuperCopier’s main application supports many modes of operations, such as:


1) Mirror mode: Bit by bit imaging.

2) Quick Copy: Advanced Smart Copy of Partitions.

3) VHD Copy: Clone image of a virtual drive.

4) Selective Capture of Files and Folders.

5) Copy to Folder: Copy all data files from a source drive into one folder on the target drives.


The application supports duplication of data from one source drive to multiple target drives, or from multiple source drives to multiple target drives. The application is updated to clone Windows 10.


Remark on off-the-shelf cloning and imaging application: There are many cloning and imaging stand alone applications, only a few are really working!


Some of the testimonials:


“The MediaClone SuperCopier Desktop unit works very well. The unit runs very fast in multiple session operations, and it is very easy to use. We have loaded many different kinds of partitions on the source drive, and the Quick Copy mode works very well cloning the source to many targets. The application supports GPT and MBR partitions with scaling and non-scaling, NTFS re-size works with different size targets, and the latest Windows 10 is very well supported.” Benny Potlog from Intel Israel


“For our purposes, being able to sanitize many drives swiftly is a serious need. We looked into several devices but they were usually made for single purposes that didn’t match what we were looking for. The MediaClone SuperCopier has allowed us to speed up cleansing drives dramatically as well as clone drives. It’s flexible and allows for many operations simultaneously. In the rare event of any issues, we have always received prompt support from MediaClone. The SuperCopier is very well constructed, simple to use, and reliable.” Warren Smite from Prosoftnet Calabasas, CA


We have searched for few solutions that could help us to destroy our data from retired storage and came across MediaClone SuperWiper solution. I must say, it saved us lots of time erasing individual disks so we have decided to add the Disk Duplicator solution to clone drives. IT Folks love to be able erase data with DoD formatting tool and also provide audit trail for our auditors. Great product and I would highly recommend it.” Les Janeczko Manager, IT Infrastructure Fuzion Analytics

Erase or Format drives

Drive Diagnostics



Main Copy/Duplicate/Clone Application Feature:

Mirror Image: 100% bit by bit for any size of master and target with any OS. The source drive and the target drives need to be the same make and size if the user wants to boot from the target drives. There is no limitation on the source drives file system. The user can image a portion of the drive by adjusting the % of the bit by bit mirror imaging. Also, the user can run HASH calculation on the transferred data in parallel to the copy operation.

Selective Capture enables the user to browse the source drive and select partitions, folders, and files to copy. The source drive needs to contain mountable partitions under Linux (FAT, exFAT, NTFS, HFS, EXT2-4).

VHD Copy enables the user to copy VHD files from a source drive that contains multiple VHD files.

Copy to Folder: Clone the entire drive and save it into one Folder.

Quick Copy/Advanced Smart Copy mode: This is where the cloning and the deploying process is done with a copy of the file system.

-It supports source drives with FAT/NTFS/exFAT/HFS+/EXT-2-3-4 file system.

-Automatically scans for all the partitions on the source drive.

-Option to scale all partitions, or scale only selective partitions, by user’s selection and choice.

-Option not to scale partitions.

Flexibility in cloning mode: It can be 1:1, 2:2, and more modes with the use of USB3.0 to SATA adapters.

Scale down: If the size of the DATA on the source drive (not the size of the source drive!) will fit the target drive, then the quick capture will be completed.

Automatically formats and partitions the target drives: On-the-fly, while the duplication runs.

Verification of the copied data:

-Built-in data transfer verification mode applies for all modes of copy.

For 100% bit by bit copy: The user can select to add an optional HASH calculation value during the data transfer (MD5, SHA-1, SHA-2) as authentication and verification of the copied data. SHA-1 is the fasted mode and it almost adds not delays the total copy time. For extra precaution, the user can also enable the option to “HASH target drives and compare” which will run an additional read-pass over the target drives and compare the HASH values to the one that was generated from the source drive. This extra step adds some extra time; for example, running 100% bit by bit copy from 1TB source drive to 3 1TB target drives can take around 2h. “HASH target drives and compare” can add another hour to the total time.


Erase and Format Operation:

Drive Erase Protocols: DoD 5220-22M, DoD Lite (Total of 4 passes), Security Erase, Enhanced Security Erase, Sanitize (3 kinds), or user defined patterns and numbers of iterations (Sanitize, Security Erase, and DoD protocols are NIST 800-88 compliant).

Drive Formats: FAT32, NTFS, exFAT, EXT4, and HFS+.


Drive Diagnostics Operation:

Drive Diagnostics tests and S.M.A.R.T. drive tests: If the user intends to erase a drive for a re-use purpose, it is recommended to run some “Health test” on the drive prior to the erase process. There are 4 available types of tests:

Read-Verify– supported by all storage protocols.

Short Test (2-5 minutes)- scans random areas on the drive.

Extended Full Test (Can take hours)- scans the entire drive.

Conveyance Test- identifies damage incurred during the transporting of the drive to evaluate the “health” condition of the drive prior to the erase operation. (S.M.A.R.T. tests are only supported by SATA/SAS/SCSI storage protocols).

Logs and Erase Certification: The application generates erase certifications (NIST 800-88) that users can easily export to USB storage devices. The user can add his/her company logo to the erase certification and add additional info on the erase run that will append to the certification.


Parallel Operations



USB3.0 to SATA adapters and Kits Option: Today USB3.0 technology is extremely fast and can run read data from SSD drives up to 20GB/min. With the use of USB3.0/3.1 to SATA 4 channel Kit, the user can convert 4 USB3.0/3.1 ports to 4 SATA ports on any of MediaClone’s unit. The optional Kit is supplied with one external PS and it includes all the cabling to power and connects the 4 USB3.0/3.1 to SATA adapters. The tested performance when running 4 adapters in parallel was measured at a very high speed and with very little speed degradation.
