Change WD back up

I have 150-GB WD 1600BEV External USB Device, MDL WD 1600ME-01 3408A. S/N [REMOVED DUE TO PRIVACY POLICY]. R/N A7B. Being used on Win 7 PC. I have purchased a WD Elements 1TB, P/N WDBUZG0010 BBK - OB. S/N [REMOVED DUE TO PRIVACY POLICY]RUN. 1019G R/N C6B. Can I install this to replace my 150GB as an external back up facility? I would not uninstall the existing device until the new device, if suitable, was installed.
Can you advise if this is possible and the procedure to be followed? I have been using WD items on various PC’s for over 25 years. Thank you for your attention. W (Bill) Bradford. Cambridge, UK.

Hi BearskinCap,

150GB My Passport Essential and 1TB WD Elements Portable, both are portable plug n play external USB hard drives. You can connect the USB cable, connected with the drive directly into your computer to get start with the external portable hard drive. You can have a look on below KBA for the procedure how to connect external hard drives with computer.
