Hiya people. I’ll try to keep this brief.
I have a new PR4100 (Raid 5) and a full 4TB (2TB MyCloud RAID 1) Mirror. I want to transfer all the data from the Mirror to the PR4100 and I’m not sure what the most efficient method is to do this.
Both devices are on the same LAN Gigabit switch, all switches on the LAN are gigabit. My PCs are all wireless and are connected to the wireless router, which is where all the 10 Base T LAN wiring originates.
Please tell me I don’t have to use a PC with mapped drives to do the transfer!
On my good old IX2 NAS devices they had an inbuilt “Copy Jobs” function to achieve this without a PC but I can’t see an equivalent function in the dashboard for the WD devices - or if there is I’m not sure what it is.
Also, I want to enable the Plex media server on the PR4100. Should this be done before the transfer, or after?
Can you advise please? It’s a few years since I was doing LAN tech stuff and would really appreciate your guidance here.
Thanks very much from me here in England!
