About HP Easy USB Transfer

HP Easy USB Transfer is a free add-in that allows you to move files easily between a USB hard drive and the HP MediaSmart or the HP Data Vault1.

Simply connect your USB hard drive or flash drive directly to the HP MediaSmart or the HP Data Vault, click on the Easy USB Transfer application located in the console and drag your contents to or from a share folder on the server to initiate the copy/move.

Once the transfer is initiated, no connection through your computer is required - you can disconnect or turn off your computer and the transfer will complete without a computer connected.

Great for offloading photo shoots or transferring large amounts of data to or from USB hard drives.

Transfer files to or from the USB drives – either way.
