Writing to many USB Devices

Post by Whites » Thu Mar 14, 2013 3:59 pm

Hi Alex,

Great product!

Is it possible to write a USB image to many drives e.g. connected to a Hub rather than just one singular device at a time?

Also, is there anyway to increase the write speed?

Many thanks.

You can do this already, but you must start the Restore for each device manually. I'm working on a Pro version, that will include that feature.

To increase write speed, you have to use faster flash drives and USB 3.0, if possible. There is not much perfomance potential on the software part.

So load the application up various times, and then select each independent drive manually?

Will this a great effect on overall performance?

Thanks in advance.

No. You can select another device and start a restore, while the other operation is still running. Speed limits depend on different factors, like write speed of the device, how many devices are on one bus, etc..

A working prototype is ready, I hope to have a working version by the beginning of 2014.
