Hardware Installation

1. Connect the external power adapter to the Hard Drive Dock.
2. Install 1 or 2 hard drives into the dock in either drive bay.
3. Make sure the Mode select button is out, and then press the power
button. The Mode button LED should be blue.
4. Connect the USB cable from the hard drive dock to the computer
system.
5. The operating system should now detect the hard drive(s) and
make them available. The hard drives may need to be partitioned/
formatted using a disk management utility before you can access
them.
Duplicator Mode
1. Connect the external power adapter to the Hard Drive Dock.
2. Install 2 hard drives into the dock. Make sure to place the drive
with the data you want copied (Source) into the “Source” bay. The
destination disk (Destination) should be equal or larger in capacity
than the source disk.

power button. The Mode button LED should be red.
4. Once both drives are installed, press the Start button to begin
duplication.
