    Hey, i am just about to buy a 2TB Dual Band TC as an upgrade form my 1TB Single Band - how can i quickly transfer the files from the old TC to the new TC? i have plenty of Ethernet Cables - is there a way to directly connect both TCs to each other and transfer the files? regards, skate71290

    Since both would show up as shared drives on the Mac once their set ups are completed. I would take one and disable DHCP and connect to the other via Ethernet. Then open up the shared drives in separate windows and drag the files from the old one to the new one.
