    OK - so this may just be my ignorance, but if anyone can help I would be most appreciative.

    I have seen number of USB/eSTATE adaptor but they all seem to be the reverse of what I am after.

    I have a Caldigit TS2 with 2 esata ports, one of which I am not using at present. I have some USB3 HDD's, and what I would like to do is connect those, if possible to the esata port (USB ports already being used), is that possible? Is there a cable for this or do I need an adaptor or some new external drives/enclosures?

    Thanks

    I don't think I've seen a USB drive to computer eSATA adapter. There are a bunch of drive eSATA to computer USB, but that does not help, these are not reversible.

    You could pick up an eSATA enclosure and transfer one drive (that may be less money than an adapter anyway). Or you could daisy chain another thunderbolt dock with perhaps more USB ports.
