Why is the 5TB double the thickness of the 2TB? I really hope they didn't put 2 HDDs in there.

Can you directly access files and documents that have been backed up without restoring the backed up file or document? If so, how?
If the backup was created with the WD Utilities, you would need to use that software to recover the files. If you used alternate software you would need to review their documentation.
