mkdir /media/sdb1
# mount the harddisk into the directory
mount /dev/sdb1 /media/sdb1
# show all mounted harddisk (partitions)
 /dev/sdb1                480587984 410963584  45188816   91% /media/sdb1

4. the external harddisk is mounted in /media/sdb1 and free to use'

copy data or better rsync the data

rsync a local directory to a local directoy

without the --delete parameter

copy the directory /media/source into the directory /media/target/ ... (its means after you have /media/target/source) (maybe its good to be root)

rsync -av --progress  /media/source /media/target/

you can repeat the order until all data are copied, it only copy after the second time the missing data

with the --delete parameter

rsync -av --progress --delete /media/source /media/target/

the --delete parameter means, if you delete something in the source directory and you use this rsync order again, it will be also deleted in the target

rsync a local directory to a network computer

rsync -avze ssh /media/source
