    You can buy a 30 bucks clone station and it does the same, for less money @ 90GB per sec.

    Something like this:

    Finally one of those that looks stable where the hard drive goes in. I hope they release a thunderbolt 2 version soon. I may pick one up. Thanks for posting about this Frank

    • You don't even need a computer (let alone TB) with those clone stations, for copying a drive.

      • Searching their site, I could not find the Copy Station.

        • Just google for "hard drive clone station" - they are plenty out there

          • Am I the only one who has started getting that the camera (BMPCC) shuts down when I press the record button (to stop recording) after v1.8?

              Reading it again 14 Gigs a minute is a pretty decent speed 240Gig drive in 17 minutes. My plan was to get one of the cheaper unapproved SSD's for each drive I have for my camera. They are still fast just not fast enough for realtime video. Plus the erasing feature would be a big help in those cases where I want to keep footage on master drive until last possible moment.

              • Playing around with the 1.8FW for the BMC4K and it's a welcomed addition. Looks real nice and if your scene has the exposure 400 has become a bit better (on my camera anyway). FPN can still show here and there. Its about having light with this camera.

                  Yes it would, just like you format the Red Mags in-camera on your Epic, which you primarily shoot with.

                    Duplicate SSD to HDD don't seems me the best option, as they CLONING entire drive... so I just get this VANTEC NexStar SuperSpeed NST-D400SU3-BK Plastic 2.5" & 3.5" Black USB3.0 & eSATA Dual Bay Hard Drive Dock :
                    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-059-_-Product

                    and this give me an option to create a FOLDERS on HDD and copy any of my 480GB SSD to 4TB HDD using even simple netbook with USB-3 connection!



                    I even add plastic covers for knobs - to prevent someone to puch disk out before turn the power off



                    and it's FAST, as it have both - USB-3 and E-SATA- connection:



                    .. so, I can shoot on location unstoppable even with only 2-4 480GB SSDs - when first disk is full - I put it to dock to COPY to prepared folder, and shooting to the next SDD !!! ..
                    ..and it's easy to CHECK and compare the CONTENT when copying is finished - before deleting files from SSD ...

                    ===============================

                    .. and at home I just put this 4TB HDD to another device inside my computer: SNT SNT-BPSS302ATL 2 x 5.25" Bay to 3 x 3.5" Hotswap SATA/SAS HDDs 6.0 Gbps Tray-Less backplane ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817993064 )



                    ...It's "HOT-PLUG" and don't even need to turn my computer off!

                    This way I can have as many cheap 2TB and 4TB, HDD as I need it :



                    ..and buy a new one, when the last one is full

                    ...so, What do you think about this way?

                      Depends on how much security you want. All it takes is for you to pop in a drive and hear the mechanical "click of death" and know that recovery will start at $1k in that instance if you keep everything on a single drive.

                        My Thunderbolt solution is faster but basically the same thing. I want to not have a laptop to dup a drive. Standalone is the key, 1:3 would be awesome as well.

                          I don't know why.. .but I never see any "FPN" from my camera! .. and I really like what RAW give me in post-production!

                          I feel - I can make what ever I want with colors:

                          ... Tell me: in Pro-Res we can write about 72 minutes to one 480GB SSD... how much it will be when we shoot in RAW? ...seems as about 25 minutes.. but I'm not sure.. do you have any idea?

                              Sounds like a workable solution.. probably the same kind of route I'll go. Though you'd probably want multiple copies of those master 2-4TB drives for added security for longer term storage.

                              That said, even if you had to go the data recovery route with something sometime down the road, it's still more likely you'll actually have some data recovered from a physical drive than from a fried solid state drive.

                                nothing like that was happens to my HDD for the last 5 years... I don't even heard about it..
