The connector on that drive looks to be USB 3, but it will only do high speed if its connected to a USB 3 port on the PC. These can be identified by looking at the ports on the back of the PC. The black ones are USB 2 and the blue ones are USB 3. If you don't have USB 3, we can still use USB 2, it is limited to around 35 meg per second. Provided there are no other issues, this will also get the job done. USB 2 will take 17-20 hours to copy 1.8tb , using the sync program I have in mind, which will ensure the bitch don't fail half way through. You can set it and forget it for a day and it will get done.
