Glyph Triplicator Hard Drive Backup System Details

There??s no three ways about it ?" Glyph Triplicator Hard Drive Backup System makes your job easier. When you need to back up your critical data to multiple drives, Glyph Triplicator Hard Drive Backup System saves you time and energy by making up to three copies in a single action, ensuring identical data is simultaneously copied to each target drive. Glyph Triplicator Hard Drive Backup System is perfect when you need on-site backups of your valuable data. FireWire 800, USB 2.0 and eSATA connectivity.


Connections

Glyph Triplicator Hard Drive Backup System can be connected to the computer via eSATA, FireWire or USB using any of the ports marked "computer connections". The target drives are connected to the Glyph Triplicator Hard Drive Backup System via eSATA cables only, using the ports marked "eSATA drive 1", "eSATA drive 2", etc. Glyph Triplicator Hard Drive Backup System supports any eSATA connected drives, including the Glyph PortaGig 50, PortaGig 62, GT 050Q and GT 062E.


User Interface

Glyph Triplicator Hard Drive Backup System's user interface also provides important information during the copy process. The front panel includes a button designed to guard against unintended drive initialization. The first time you power on the Glyph Triplicator Hard Drive Backup System, the blue LED blinks to indicate that button press is required. On button press, the drives initialize and the blue LED goes to solid. After a few seconds a volume will be visible to your computer. Format this volume using your operating system utility, and you're ready to go. After the Glyph Triplicator Hard Drive Backup System has initialized the drives, the red LED pattern blinks to show the number of attached drives. If no drives are attached, the LED goes solid red. If a discovered drive disappears in the course of operation, it goes solid red.


In Use

You can use the Glyph Triplicator Hard Drive Backup System volume as you would use the volume on any drive. However, when you copy data to the Glyph Triplicator Hard Drive Backup System volume, the data will be copied to all target drives at the same time. Once you are done working with the drives, you can unmount the volume just like any external drive, and connect the target drives individually to a computer. You will see that the same data is on each drive.


Drive Capacities

It is best, but not necessary, for all of the drive capacities to be the same. If you connect three 500GB drives, the volume will be 500GB, because the same data is copied to all drives. If you connect two 500GB drives and one 250GB drive, the capacity will be equal to the smallest drive, so total capacity will be 250GB.


Remount Functionality

After you have created a Triplicator drive set and copied data to the drives, the Glyph Triplicator Hard Drive Backup System and drives can be powered off and on. On power up, the Glyph Triplicator Hard Drive Backup System will discover and mount the previously created drive set. This allows you to work with the Glyph Triplicator Hard Drive Backup System as you would any other drive, while at the same time having your data present on up to three hard drives.
