The PC-3000 Portable III Is Even Faster and More Powerful Now!
Posted by Administrator ACE on 23 March 2020 01:11 PM

ACE Lab developers continue enhancing the software of the PC-3000 Portable III System with new features for the user community. As a result, the most universal and powerful tool became even faster – now the speed of internal copying is up to 490 MB/s. We also added the support of HDDs and SSDs with a logical sector size other than 512 bytes that had not previously been possible. Besides, it’s no longer required to disable the Secure Boot option in UEFI (BIOS) before the PC-3000 Portable III installation.

Up to 490 MB/s speed for internal copying

The USB 3.0 interface restricts a port-to-port copying speed in the PC-3000 Portable III Data Extractor to 360 MB/s. That is why we have enhanced the firmware of the PC-3000 Portable III and implemented the “internal” copying to transfer data from port to port without involving a PC. In such a case, the attribute map is filled and the copy speed reaches up to 490 MB/s. To get the maximum possible speed, you need to use a large block for reading/writing procedures.

Copying from the SSD port to the PC-3000 Portable III port

The high-speed copying mode is activated automatically under the following conditions:

  • The drives are connected to the ports of the PC-3000 Portable III;
  • There is no need to transfer read data to a computer.

For example, if data is copied “on the card” and there are no “connected” alternative cards (which require reading data from the drive to fill them in), the copying will be performed “inside” the PC-3000 Portable III at maximum speed.

HDDs/SSDs with logical sector size other than 512 bytes are now supported

From now on, you can recover data from HDDs/SSDs with a logical sector size other than 512 bytes with the PC-3000 Portable III. Previously, it was not possible to implement such support due to the limitations of the Marvell 88SA8052 bridge in the PC-3000 Express/UDMA. Now, we have enhanced the firmware of the PC-3000 Portable III controller and the high-level software – the core of the PC-3000 Systems – to support this format.

No longer need to disable the Secure Boot option in UEFI (BIOS) before the PC-3000 Portable III installation

We have developed and added to the latest software update new drivers to meet the requirements of the Microsoft Windows 10 OS digital signature:

  • Driver for the PC-3000 Portable III controller;
  • Driver for the virtual storage device mounting in OS

Previously it was not possible to install the PC-3000 Portable III Systems on the OEM laptops and brand PCs (such as Lenovo, Dell, HP, etc.), which have a Secure Boot option enabled in UEFI (BIOS), due to the Microsoft digital signature verification error. In this case, the customer had to reinstall his copy of Windows 10 to the boxed version (BOX) which allows disabling the Secure Boot option in UEFI (BIOS).

With the new drivers, you do not need to do this anymore, since you can install the PC-3000 Portable III System on PC's with active UEFI Secure Boot.

The new version of the software is available for download in your Personal Update Boxes.
