I have a very old MyBook Live (2Tb) and would like to replace the drive. I bought a WD40EFRX hoping I could use it. Since the MyBook Live is a single drive NAS, how do I copy the data to a new drive? I have tried to copy the data to an external hard drive but no matter what computer OS I am using (Windows XP when it was still supported, Windows 7 Pro, and Windows 10) the copy would always fail or not copy everything. It (Windows) would appear to time out so things did not get copied.
If the WD40EFRX Red NAS drive will not work as a replacement in the MyBook Live, what will work? How do I hook up the second drive to copy the data to since the Live is single drive?
Is there any software that will do the copy? I do miss the functionality of the old Xcopy. I suspect the big problem would be in hooking up the two drives at the same time.
How should the new drive be formatted?
Thank you for your help.
