Quick ? regarding file transfer from PC Server.
Mar 30, 2013

Good morning -

I am not quite sure about this and I never found a clear answer through Google.

I need to transfer files off a network connected PC server to a mac external drive.

The problem is that my network has been acting up and dropping connections.

I can't figure out what's wrong so I am loath to trust it to transfer some critical files by copying and pasting through my (also network connected) Mac to the mac drive.

In the interim I need to copy my server files to a Mac (HFTS+) formated drive ASAP.

Can I connect this Mac drive via USB direct to the server and simply copy the files (no need to read/write) ?

I could figure this out empirically by making the connection myself but it involves a lot of manipulation which I would rather not go through if I don't have to.

Many thanks for answering a newb question!
