Able to accomodate 1 pce. M.2 NVMe and/or 1 pce. M.2 SATA or 1 pce. 2.5"/3.5" SATA SSD/HDD.
USB I/F is USB 3.2 Gen2x1 (10Gbit/s). Adapter side is C type, PC side is A type.
M.2 NVMe/SATA: 2242-to-110
SATA SSD/HDD: 2.5" or 3.5" any height
Allowed capacities: M.2 NVMe: 8 TB, 2.5"/3.5" SATA: 20 TB, no info on M.2 SATA but it should be 20 TB since it uses SATA interface of adapter.
Power: via external (bundled) adapter which is 3A capable.
Cloning possibilities:
via built-in facility invoked by a pushbutton on the device. Cloning direction is set via switch on device. No external software or driver required for Microsoft OS.
- To and from: M.2 NVMe, 2.5"/3.5" SATA
- To and from: M.2 NVMe, M.2 SATA
- Cloning to/from M.2 SATA and 2.5"/3.5" SATA is not possible due to SATA connectors share same internal interface.
Personal note: Highly recommended!

That being said, if you have sufficient space on another storage device or both devices (source and destination) are available for cloning, you can always use CloneZilla to perform cloning (on-the-fly or offline-backup-deploy) manually.
