  A friend of mine just bought a fancy hard drive tester from CSC. Among
other things, it can do "Forensic" backups of drives. I haven't looked at
the details but I wonder if it can clone drives. I didn't look closely at
the specs but I know it can handle several forms of IDE drives, SCA drives
and SCSI drives. I don't know if it handles MFM, RLL, etc.
