I have tried searching for the answer to this online and on this forum, but haven’t found a solution yet.
I recently began to run out of room on my MyCloud 2TB Gen 2. To upgrade, I purchased a MyCloud Pro PR2100 and one 4TB Red Drive (NASware 3.0).
What I’m trying to do is copy/migrate the data from the 2TB drive to the new 4TB drive. Originally, I read on here that WD Mycloud devices support RAID roaming, but after populating the 2TB drive into the PR2100, this doesn’t seems to work on the older/single bay MyCloud models.
As of now, I’m using windows file explorer to copy/paste, which is working… albeit very slowly (about 5.5 MB/S which by my math should take ~4.2 days to complete for all 2TB).
Is there a better way to move data once you upgrade to a new WD NAS? I have looked into SSH, and although I’m a little familiar with linux from tinkering with a Raspberry Pi, I’m not confident I know the syntax of the directory names on the WD machines to get it right.
Any help is appreciated!
