Intelligent Duplication Modes

The NV-BM series offers intelligent duplication modes that cater to different needs and file formats. Let's explore these modes:

Systems and Files (Quick Copy Mode)

The duplicator automatically identifies and copies only the data area, significantly reducing the duration of the copy process. This ensures efficient duplication by excluding empty spaces within the capacity.

This copy mode supports a wide range of file formats, including Windows (FAT16/32/64/NTFS), Linux (ext2/ext3/ext4), and Mac (HFS/HFS+/HFSX). In the event that the file system format is not among the supported formats mentioned, the system will automatically switch to "whole media copy" mode.

Whole Media

In this mode, the duplicator performs a bit-by-bit copy from the initial sector to the end. It ensures an exact replica of the source device, making it suitable for all system and proprietary formats.

Unlike the quick copy mode, there are no format limitations in the whole media mode, providing flexibility for diverse duplication needs.

Impeccable High Speed

Speed is a defining factor in data duplication, and the NV-BM series excels in this aspect. With a remarkable transfer speed of up to 24 GB per minute, this duplicator maintains consistent performance even as the number of target devices increases. Whether you need to duplicate a few or multiple devices simultaneously, the NV-BM series ensures unparalleled speed and efficiency.

Support Firmware Upload

The NV-BM series supports firmware loading for multi-slot PCIE devices. It can handle various firmware formats, including .sig and .enc. This feature enables easy and efficient firmware updates on M.2 devices, ensuring compatibility with the latest technologies and enhancements.

High Compatibility

The NV-BM series offers high compatibility with different operating systems and file formats. Let's explore its capabilities:

  • The quick copy mode supports Windows: FAT16/32/64, Linux formats including ext2/ext3/ext4, and Mac formats including HFS/HFS+/HFSX. 
  • The whole media copy mode supports all system and proprietary formats, making it suitable for duplicating devices with diverse file systems.
  • The NV-BM series is designed to support various brands of PCIe M.2 devices, ensuring broad compatibility in the market.
  • It is specifically designed to accommodate the highest storage capacities available, allowing for duplication of large-scale data.
  • The duplicator supports both MBR (Master Boot Record) and GPT (GUID Partition Table) partitioning methods.

Sanitization Methods

The NV-BM series provides comprehensive data sanitization methods to ensure secure and reliable duplication. Let's explore these methods:

  • Quick Erase: This method erases the device index table, providing a quick and efficient way to sanitize the device. 
  • Full Erase: The full erase method completely erases the entire device, ensuring data privacy and security.
  • DoD Erase: Complies with the U.S. Department of Defense erasure standards, sensitive data is securely erased and cannot be recovered.
  • Secure Erase: This method follows the guidelines set by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) 800-88. It provides a comprehensive and secure erasure process, giving you peace of mind that your data is irretrievable.

Open Platform Design

The NV-BM series features an open platform design, supporting a wide range of storage devices. It is compatible with various M.2 devices, including NVMe and SATA Express, as well as U.2 drives via an adapter. Additionally, it supports PCIE SSDs, Mini PCIe devices (via an adapter), and M key and B+M key configurations for M.2 PCIe devices. The cable-free connection design makes M.2 connection and disconnection hassle-free and convenient.

Verification of Data Integrity

Ensuring the accuracy and integrity of duplicated data is of utmost importance. The NV-BM series employs a bit-by-bit verification process to confirm the successful duplication of data. This meticulous verification procedure reduces the risk of errors and guarantees reliable copies, minimizing the chances of customer recalls and ensuring a high level of customer satisfaction.

Event Log Report

The NV-BM series features an innovative mechanism that generates an Event Log Report. This report records detailed information about the operation results and other relevant data for each duplicated device. The Event Log Report serves as a valuable asset for production management and analysis, providing insights into the duplication process and facilitating efficient tracking and auditing.

Skipping Bad Sectors

To optimize duplication efficiency, the NV-BM series offers the option to skip bad sectors from the source device. Users can select the number of bad sectors to skip, ranging from 0 to unlimited. This feature allows for a smooth duplication process, ensuring that only healthy and error-free data is copied to the target devices.

Conclusion

The NV-BM series is the ultimate solution for high-volume duplication of PCIe M.2 devices. With its exceptional speed of up to 24 GB per minute, intelligent duplication modes, and support for various firmware formats, it meets the diverse needs of manufacturers and professionals in need of efficient and reliable data duplication. The device's compatibility with different operating systems and file formats, along with its advanced data sanitization methods, open platform design, and comprehensive verification processes, make it a top choice in the market.

With the NV-BM series, you can streamline your duplication processes, enhance productivity, and ensure the integrity of your duplicated data.

Questions & Answers

Q1. What is the difference between system and files copy and whole media copy modes?

System and Files Copy Mode selectively replicates recognized file formats, such as Linux (ext2/ext3/ext4), Windows (NTFS, FAT16/32/64), or Mac (HFS, HFS+, HFSX). It specifically copies the data/format sections of the media, typically making it faster.

In contrast, Whole Media Copy Mode initiates a complete copy from LBA 0 and continues until all addresses are copied, including areas that don't contain your data. This is a more comprehensive but slower process.

Q2. I get a "No Update File” message when attempting a BIOS update. What should I do?

Follow these steps to troubleshoot:

  1. Make sure the BIOS file is unzipped.
  2. Verify that the update partition uses an MBR partition table and is formatted in FAT32.
  3. Ensure the BIOS file is located in the root directory of the device without being inside any folders.
  4. Try saving the BIOS file to a different, reliable device.
  5. Re-download and save the BIOS file, temporarily disabling any software utilities that might interfere during the download process.
  6. Confirm that the BIOS file corresponds to the product model requiring the update.

Q3. What could cause immediate duplication failure after starting the copy process?

Several reasons can cause this:

  1. Ensure the source's capacity doesn't exceed the target devices' capacities.
  2. If the source device is NTFS formatted, the target device's capacity must be at least 1MB larger than the source.
  3. Verify the source device's accessibility using a PC to check for potential errors.

Q4. Can I copy from a drive with a capacity of 500 GB to one of 250 GB?

Yes, provided the data and formatting on the 500GB drive don't exceed 250GB. If using a GPT partition table, remember the backup partitions will be stored at the end of the 500GB drive. Use the settings option to prevent copying the backup GPT partition - it will be restored upon the next reboot in a PC.

Q5. What is the internal SSD used for?

The internal SSD allows users to create and store drive images, either directly or using the GOB software. These images can then be used as a source, and all slots on top become eligible targets for duplication.

Q6. Why is my copy speed slower than the quoted speed?

The speed specified in the product specs represents the maximum potential speed. The actual speed will depend on the read/write speed of your drives. Drives with large amounts of data may experience a reduction in speed over time due to heat buildup.

Q7. Can this machine copy SATA drives?

Yes, the machine natively supports both NVMe and SATA protocols. It inherently supports M key and B+M key M.2 interfaces. With the optional adapter (TB1589), it can also support the traditional SATA interface.
