This is a bit of a newbie question but I have been racking my brains with no sucess. I bought a USB drive which has been plugged into the MyBook. I have mapped the drive and I can copy data onto it from a host PC no problem.
My problem is that I want to be able to copy about 300GB of data from the Mybooks HDD to the USB HDD plugged into the MyBook. If I try to do this through Windows explorer it tries to take all the data from the MyBook, send it to my Windows PC over the network and then send it back to the mybook from my PC, thus it is VERY slow. I tried to FTP into the MyBook and copy and paste the data from the FTP interface but it wont let me copy from one volume to another, thus I am stumped. Any suggestions would be welcome - I dont really know SSH but is this an option, is there anything with a GUI that can do it?
It seems so simple, I just want to take a folder on the MyBook and put it onto a USB drive plugged into the MyBook without it routing it all through my PC. Am I just being dumb?
