Update (1/14/2016):

There has been a lot of progress made in this area.  Attached is Getting Files From a WBT.pdf, which is an except from the WBT manual which gives step by step details on the steps above Chris mentions.  As of this update, step #4 is now available in the product, and is discussed in section 4.10 where the "File Manager" is discussed.

These different methods are all valid, which one is best for you will likely depend on how you wish to get access to the data.  These methods also work for files that are created by Apps such as Export or Spectrum Sweeper, and many others as ways to get the data the app(s) create and put on the data disks.

There are several methods for transferring files between the Internal Drives and other devices.

1 - Remove the Drive from the WBT and mount it to a PC for file transfer. Note that the WBT drives use the ext4 file system, and so you'll need software capable of accessing ext4 drives. This method has the advantage of freeing the WBT's drive bay for a fresh disk, allowing continuous record and playback.

2 - Connect to the WBT over a network via an SCP client, such as WinSCP, and transfer the desired files between the WBT and the local machine.

3 - Connect to the WBT over a network via a VNC client which supports file transfer, such as UltraVNC, and transfer the desired files between the WBT and the local machine.

4 - In the upcoming 2.4 firmware, file transfer will be possible directly on the WBT between connected external USB and eSATA drives via the File Manager.
