Make a Backup of a Back up...with WD Backup


So I have a 6tb MyBook, been using it with the WD Backup software to back up my PC everyday. Love it easy to use and navigate. Now just got an 8tb to make a back up of my 6tb. So that essential I would have everything on my PC backing up to my 6tb MyBook and then the 8tb automatically backing up the 6tb that just backed up the PC.

Problem: When I open the software and look for the WD Backup.swstor folder to back up, it’s not listed as an option.

Is there a way to do this with WD Backup or another software?

Thank you.

Hi kris1923,

The WD Backup software is designed in such way that it can backup the data of internal drive to the WD My Book but it cannot backup the data of the external drive to the another external drive using WD Backup.

However, you can manually Drag & Drop or Copy & Paste the data from the WD My Book 6TB to WD My Book 8TB drive.
