Can I move my backup to a larger drive?

I’m using WD Smartware to back up several drives onto a MyBook. But now I’ve run out of space on this MyBook and I want to move to a bigger one.

How can I move the backup from the old MyBook to the new one and have Smartware carry on adding to that backup? ie I don’t want an “old” backup and a “new” backup - I just want one.

Do I just copy everything from the old MyBook to the new one?

You can transfer the old backup manually by copying the content of the backup into the new unit. Unfortunately, WD SmartWare will not continue/resume the backup since it does not include a migration feature at the time of this post. A new backup will need to be created while the old files will be treated as “Additional files”.
