Copying files off external drives

Question

I have several TB of data that I would like to migrate onto my new XPEnology server.  I know there is a "USB Copy" package, but I'd prefer to hook up the drive to my server via SATA which is much faster.  How would I be able to copy the files in that case?  I'm assuming this would have to be via the command prompt - cp and rsync commands both exist, but how do I find out where my new drive is mounted?  And which destination should I copy to, just /volume1/ ?

Thanks in advance for any tips.

Wow, so sorry you are not getting any answers ... since October 19

 

Not sure myself how to go about it.

 

Good luck

Thanks, John - it was actually really easy to do, USB drives show up in the DSM interface, the SATA attached drive appeared in the HDD list.  Then I was able to use File Station with drag and drop.
