How to Clone USB Drive

Clone usb external hard drive to another?

Hi, I have two USB Hard Drives; one Western Digital 1.5 TB and a Samsung 2 TB. I would like to know if there is any way i can clone the 1.5 TB to the 2 TB.  My dilemma is that they are both via usb so i don't think a program would be able to detect them. How do I do it?

If there is no siecial or boot file on your USB, you can simply copy and paste the whole data from your USB to the 2 TB one. But if it's a bootable USB containing boot or special files, you can't copy it like this, because it will make your boot files useless. You need to use a special USB cloning tool to help.
