I'd discard the 'move' option for a minute. With content like this I'd suggest copying to the destination and then checking it to be sure it works ok is preferable to 'moving'. Especially when you're dealing with external drives.

I'd suggest using a sync tool to copy the data from one place to another. This way, if it's interrupted for whatever reason you can just resuming the sync.

I'd also make sure everything is connected by cable to to the transfers, even if you'll be using wifi once all setup.

I wouldn't use the WD software for anything. In my experience it's poor at best and just creates another layer to deal with.

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup
