external hard drive and Raidon 3630


I have a 1T external hard drive
I bought a RAidon 3630 a while ago but didn't use it much since I have tons of data on my 1T external hard drive

Is there a way to miror in one shot all the data on my external HD , to the raidon 3630.

So I could stop using the single 1T and start using my 3630 now

Thank you

The Raidon is an external hard drive cabinet, if you connect it to the same computer then just copy from the 1Tb external drive to the Raidon. Or is there something you forgot to mention in your question maybe? Copying the data should be quite easy.

yes it's easy , but I have a lot (like a lot of picture , some videos.... so 300 GB total

IS there a way to make the process faster than the direct regular transfer , I heard about mirror copying system)

The idea is that I just to make the process faster

I don't know details about the Raidon device but devices like these often have an extra USB connector that you could connect your 1Tb drive to. But if your 1Tb drive only has a USB connection then that would be limiting your transfer speed. Is it USB2 or 3 and does the Raidon have an extra USB connector? How is the Raidon connected to your computer?

the raidon is connected to the computer via USB
Gerwin Jansen, EE MVETopic Advisor Commented:
It's connected though USB2.0 - this is what is limiting your speed. If you would be able to write 30Mb/s to the Raidon then you would have to wait roughly 3 hours. But if you have a lot of small files, it will take longer. Temporarily disabling your virusscanner (if it scans on write) would help. If you do, I would disable the network connection as well.
