DuoCor, Inc. grew out of an idea conceived by two friends in Nevada City, California during June of 1996. The company's vision of protecting data and allowing for immediate disaster recovery was tuned to the disk drive industry's estimate of reaching 10-gigabyte entry level capacity by the year 2000. With all of the data that would be stored on a 10-gigabyte drive, the trauma related to lost data would be overwhelming.
Along with increased disk capacity, also came lower prices. Our vision was that the low cost of adding a second disk drive far out-weighed the level of trauma that would result from a system crash and its resulting data loss. Hence the name, DuoCor, which in Latin means two hearts (the heart of a PC is it's disk drive).
DuoCor's technology relates to the "hiding" of the backup storage disk from the operating system so that it cannot become corrupt by the user or the operating system itself. At the core of the technology, the software communicates with the backup drive without using the operating system file structure. The company filed its first patent on this technology in August 1997, which was awarded in May 2000.
