One of the major headaches of upgrading a laptop or other computer is the problem of how to transfer all your existing data from the old machine to the new one. You can sit there for hours manually copying files and folders from the old disk to DVD discs, or maybe try and work out how to connect the two machines over your network (good luck if you’re on a Windows network). But now there’s another way.
This Orico Hard Drive Clone Adapter lets you hook two hard drives (or a hard disc and solid state drive) together and clone one from the other with the push of a single button. No computer needed at all. The device is nicely marked with Source and Target labels, so you know which sockets to plug in the drives, and the connections allow you to clone from both 2.5 and 3.5 inch SATA drives in a snap.
It also features a high speed USB 3.0 port, to let you move data to and from external drives at extremely chop chop speeds, and it comes with all the necessary cables to make it work. Finally once you’ve done cloning your disks, you can use the adapter as a docking interface to a regular external hard drive, so you get more mileage for your buck. Clever. Priced at $58.00 all in.
