Summary: I was able to recover a crashed disk drive that was internal to my PC. My PC was not able to recognize the old drive. All files were recovered, including many photos and are now on a new internal drive in my PC. I am pleased!

Summary: On Jan 9th 2013 my first project with my brand new AHDDUB100 is to clone a Seagate Barracuda 500Gb drive. Target is another Seagate Barracuda 500Gb drive. Power on, lights come on. Not USB connected. Press START - nothing happens I can read both drives in the dock with USB cord. OK, remove USB cord.
Summary: I have two of these and am happy as a clam. If a hard drive starts to fail, there is nothing like putting the content onto a brand-new drive before turning the rattly old drive into magnets and mirrors. Oh, for fishing data off of that old hard drive in a dead PC, this gadget is really hard to beat.
