Is it possible to back up a Western Digital MyBook World Edition 1TB via the USB connection?  I know the USB port is usually used to add on storage space to be served to the network via the network cable.  I want to back up this drive so I have more than one copy of my data and am looking for a direct solution, rather than using my PC to act as a go-between.
