    DEF CON will provide a core set of drive duplicators as well as data content options.
    • It will be a first come, first served to duplicate 'till we drop.
    • Bring labeled 6TB SATA blank drives, and submit them in the queue for the data you want.
    • Come back in 14-24 hours to pick up your data-packed drive.
    • Space allowing, the last drop-offs will be no later than Saturday afternoon and the last drives will run overnight with the final pickup time at 11:30am.

    - 6TB drive 1-3: Updated archive of plus other "direct from DT" content

    - 6TB drive 3-3: more rainbowtables, lanman, mysqlsha1, ntlm, and some word lists (Tables 2-2) with about 136 gigs free

    If you want a full copy of everything you will need three drives.
    You can bring back last year's drive(s) to be wiped / updated (you should remove any 2018 stickers).

    • Be aware that we cleared all the Vegas area stores of every single 6TB drive last year so plan ahead and get them now!
    • Duplicating a 6TB (About 5.46 usable) drive at an average of 120 Megabytes a second comes out to just under 14 hours per drive.
    • With all about 16 duplicators going, we can duplicate about 95 drives concurrently.
    • We're expect to push about 11GB per second out to the drives for 72 hours straight.
    • We did 335 drives for DC24 and we're hoping to do even more for DC25!
    • We are expecting more total duplicator capacity than last year!

      Wow -- just about one week left before we begin to accept hard drives for the 2019 DC27 mass duplication event known as the DDV! We've been working hard behind the scenes and have added dozens more drive bays! We've crunched the numbers and hope to duplicate over 500 drives this year! Be sure to get your drives and drop them off early (FIFO).

        Where and when do people drop off this year?

        Excellent question! This year, we're located in the Bally's event center office (small office near the bathrooms in the main Bally's event center). The drop-off times can be found in the WHEN TO BE THERE section above.
