I have a mycloud 3tb single bay. i have now purchased a WD red 6tb and would like to use it to upgrade the Mycloud. As it takes too long to add files via ethernet i would like to pre load the new HDD with files which will be coming from a 3rd HDD. the question is: will i be able to load the files in the new HDD and insert it in the my cloud enclosure and have all the my cloud settings still in place?
also i am assuming ntfs formatting is the one to go for, correct?
and are there any files i should ensure to transfer from the HDD that is currently in the bay to ensure the MYCloud will work correctly?
Sorry for all the very basic questions… any help and general words of wisdom are very much appreciated.
