I have a failed World edition external drive (Blue rings / White case), having read numerous posts regarding the issue I’m happy that the drive itself is OK as it spins up and has the occasional dull thud, although it has failed I do intend to replace with another WD unit (namely a My Book Live Duo) but want ensure my existing data is recovered / protected.
As the duo live is a “limited user-serviceable” product, would I be able to simply drop the World edition drive into the Live Duo and have it re-build / mirror the existing data if set to RAID 1 ?

If the Live Duo is not compatible it there another WD NAS / Media Server product that is ?
Any advice or assistance would be greatly appreciated.
