Hi I have a WD Element 1T
That I was using since a while to bqck up my stuff

I purchased a raidon with 2x 1T HD

How could I copy all my data from the ELement 1T to the raidon tower in a quick and easy way. To be able in the future to use only the raidon tower as a backup.

Thank you

Does it have its own USB carrier and connector? If so, use that.

If it can be mounted in an external carrier, put it in an USB carrier and hook it up that way.

My WD is a USB drive and I have a carrier for other drives.

you have not many choices; the wd drive is exclusively usb
so connect it to the raidon tower by USB and copy your data (it will take a while)
if you want quicker  - buy usb 3 equipment ! (10x faster)
