The Image MASSter Solo-4 G3 IT PRO SATA-3 6Gb/s hard drive data duplication unit configured with the i7 Processor, offers IT Professionals the ability to Copy Drives at SATA-3 speeds from two Source drives simultaneously. It can also Acquire Data from 1 Source drive to up to 3 Destination drives. The unit features built-in native support for SAS, SATA, eSATA, USB 3.0 and Firewire drives. It also supports IDE, as well as a variety of Flash Media. Designed exclusively for IT applications, the Image MASSter Solo-IV G3 system is a versatile lightweight, portable, high speed data duplication device. Source drives data can be copied at speeds exceeding 6GB per minute. The unit offers multiple Copy Formats such as IQCopy which is an Intelligent Copy method that copies only allocated data and creates, scales and formats Destination partitions. The available Copy Formats include VHD Capture, which allows storing multiple images in a single Destination drive or Shared Network Folder. The units advanced Touch Screen user interface provides ease of use. This IT Data Acquisition unit also offers a built-in Gigabit Ethernet connection allowing users to upload images to Storage Area Networks (SAN) for the purpose of processing and archiving data. The unit allows installation of 3rd Party applications.
- Extreme Speed: Optimized for todays
High Speed Drives, the Solo-4 IT SATA-3 6Gb/s Duplicates and Sanitizes drives at
speeds exceeding 7GB/min. The units design takes advantage of current drive
technology and also prepares the user for future advances in drive speeds.
- One Write Protected Source Port:
For the protection of the users original images, the unit provides one standard
write protected native SATA/SAS Source port and one standard write protected
native USB 2.0 Source port for the duplication of up to three Target drives.
Optional Adapters allow imaging of IDE drives, 1.8 ZIF, 2.5 Laptop drives, and
Flash Media such as Compact Flash, Memory Sticks, SD, Micro SD, Multi Media
- Multiple Target Ports: Provides
three native SATA/SAS Target ports and three native USB 2.0 Target ports to
allow the user to make up to three copies of a single drive. One of the Target
ports can be configured by user as an optional write protected Source port to
allow the single copying of 2 different Source drives simultaneously. Optional
Adapters will allow imaging to other drive devices including external RAID
- Multiple Operational Modes:
Windows Operating System: The IMSolo-4 IT
SATA-3 6Gb/s runs on the Windows Operating System, providing flexibility and
device compatibility support. Unit can be customized for Multi-Language support.
Unit can be customized to individuals needs upon request. Compatible with a
wide range of PC peripherals.
- Single Source Copy Mode
allows Duplicating from one Source drive to up to three Target
- Multi Source Copy Mode
allows Duplicating from two Source drives to two individual Target drives.
- Multi Operational Mode
allows performing different operations simultaneously, such as duplicating some
drives while sanitizing other drives; all without any speed degradation.
- Multi MASSter Mode allows
the duplication of up to three different Target hard drives from images stored
on a single Source drive. For the users convenience, this mode allows for
multiple images to be stored on a singe Source drive.
The unit provides multiple Duplication Formats:
- IQCopy which copies only
allocated files, greatly reducing copy time and automatically scales and formats
- Percent of Disk copies all
sectors including unused sectors and supports any Operating System.
- Multi MASSter allows for the
duplication of stored images of hard drives.
Supports Single Pass or Multi-Pass Wiping using the DoD Standard
to permanently erase all data from hard drives.
On the fly Drive Image
Utilizing the built-in AES 256 Encryption Technology the
Image MASSter Solo-4 SATA-3 6Gb/s encrypts with minimal speed degradation all
digital data during the Acquisition Process for the purpose of safe guarding
sensitive information. The Image MASSter Solo-4 SATA-3 6Gb/s creates a secure
key with a user-chosen pass phrase. An AES 256 encryption key is then generated
by the Image MASSter Solo-4 SATA-3 6Gb/s and can be saved to any USB thumb
drive. The encrypted drive can be decrypted on the fly utilizing the Image
MASSter Solo-4 SATA-3 6Gb/s or any regular PC loaded with the ICS free
decryption utility and the USB thumb drive containing the saved key. User can
then safely image the decrypted data to an additional target drive. The IMSolo-4
SATA-3 6Gb/s supports the AES 256-bit block cipher Encryption Standard, which
has been approved by NIST and chosen in the US as the government standard. The
IMSolo-4 SATA-3 6Gb/s AES Encryption Algorithm is hardware based and is embedded
and implemented directly through the unit's VIA Nano Processor. VIA
Technologies, VIA Nano Processor has been validated as correctly implementing
the AES algorithm as indicated in the attached NIST report titled,
Advanced Encryption Standard Algorithm Validation List." See Validation # 1229.

Upload and Download Images to Network Storage
Images files can be uploaded and downloaded to a Network Storage
Area. This will allow the user to take advantage of large storage platforms
(SAN) for the purpose of processing and archiving images.
- Preview Data: Preview active files on
the Source drive utilizing Windows file viewing capabilities in a write
- USB Card Reader Support: Optional 3rd Party USB Card Reader Support allows
use of Flash Media such as Compact Flash, Memory Sticks, SD, Micro SD, Multi
Media card, etc.
- Write-Protection: By default, the
Source port is permanently write-protected. Optionally, any Target port can
be write-protected when used as a Source port in Multi Source Copy Mode to
avoid any accidental overwrites to the original hard drive.
- Hashing and Data Verification:
Provides Read Back Verification and Hashing using MD5 or SHA algorithms for data
