    Following the link provided, read the specification and it says "Hard Disk Interface : USB 1.1".
    So, is this USB 1.1 device disguised as USB3.0 device ? If yes then good luck transferring 20 TB data using USB 1.1 speed.

    Amazon listing shows USB 1.1

    WD specs show USB 2.0 - 3.0

    I would set up system like you have with a NAS and much faster drives. Usb 1.1? Are they joking?

    I’ve learned a long time ago. That cheap is not the best way.

    A 20TB is only marginally larger than 2 of the 11 drives in my NAS...16TB and 18TB.
    The drive is the same, just the interface may be different.

    And I'm not entirely sure about that 1.1.
    Could be just a mistake in Amazon.
