Making forensic copies of SATA/IDE drives is quick and easy with HardCopy 3P. A small device with a simple interface, HardCopy is easy to use and highly portable, and its operation always preserves the contents of original drives in your custody.
Easy to use, reliable disk imaging with NIST-approved SHA256
Image to one or two drives
Image while hashing SHA256 in the hardware at up to 6 GB per minute (5.8 GB per minute if hashing MD5). There's no speed penalty for copying to a second destination drive. Imaging speed is limited only by the slowest drive connected, up to 6 GB per minute.
HardCopy's source port is permanently write-blocked in hardware for reliable, fault-free data control. The source port never has data written to it.
Easy to use
HardCopy is exceptionally easy to use. Many of our customers don't even open the manual. No time consuming or expensive training required. Self-train in a few minutes.
HardCopy is a dedicated hardware device—there's no need for a laptop or PC to image.
HardCopy is small and lightweight. It fits in a shirt pocket, though the laptop-style power brick won't.

More on speed and ease of use
- Automatic handling of HPA and DCOs
Wipes (on the destination ports only) at over 7 GB per minute
Clones as well as images—clones at the same speed as imaging from the one source port to two destinations without slowing down, with or without hash (actually caps out at 7.1 GB per minute without hashing/checksums)
Built-in IDE port for the source drive (there is a SATA connector and an IDE connector for the one source port. If you have an old (IDE) suspect drive, simply connect to the IDE source port, no adapter necessary)
Clone or wipe drives larger than 2 TB. Image, clone or wipe any SATA or IDE drive 2TB or less.
