Most defininitely copy over the network PROVIDING both NAS and PC are connected to the router via Ethernet cables.

Alternatively a possibly even faster way is to remove one of your NAS drives and install it in your PC using the fastest SATA port in your computer. Do an internal transfer to this disk then put it into your NAS and rebuild the array.

Very true! I'd forgotten that people still use obsolete junk like the Hub Zero.

Everything is connected by cables to a 1GB switch
