    How do I clone with Eaxer USB 3.0 dual HDD dock?


    I have an Eaxer dual-HDD dock with a "CLONE" button on it. But I've lost the directions. Does it clone from the front drive to the back one, or vice versa?

    And do you work it by pressing the button once, or holding the button down (for how long?), or something else?

    Unfortunately the description at https://www.amazon.com/Dual-Bay-Encl...SIN=B01F5OOA6A does specify reading the manual and I found a link to the download in the Reviews section at the bottom.

    Disregard the Microsoft OneDrive mention, it does get there.

    You did me a bad thing, you woke up my interest and now I'm going to have to get one.

    Since I did not have the info before your post, I went ahead and cloned the disc with Macrium Reflect Free. So far, it's taken at least five hours, and we're only at 84%. (Cloning a 2-TB drive, though I think it has only 1 GB or so of stuff on it.)

    But I may have to do it again with the dock, because it looks like Reflect is screwing up. At the moment, there are four drives in my system and two (the clone source and target) in the dock. I carefully selected Disc 5 as the source and Disc 6 as the target, both 2-TB drives. But the Reflect screen now says "Creating volume snapshots" and shows my C:\ drive (500 GB) as the source. Then I clicked "Hide" on the Macrium window and it disappeared. Alt-Tab does not show it, and Task Manager does not show it as a running app (though it does sh ow it as a running Background Process); but the data light on the dock for my target disc is still blinking, though the light for my desired source disc is not.
