I am currently using a Lacie 2Big Quadra external hard drive to store my Lightroom photos.

It's configured so that the two 2TB discs mirror each other.....it's getting old.

I'd like to have another similar storage drive to mirror this one by using two 4 TB discs.

How can I, using Lightroom, safely copy the data from my older drive to the new one so that they are mirroring each other as far as content goes.

Why would you want to use Lightroom for that? You can copy the photos using the Finder, or a clone utility. Lightroom wouldn't copy the images, but move them (unless you use 'Export').

Where might I find out exactly how to do that?

I'm sorry. Are you asking how to copy something from one disk to another on a Macintosh? Just drag it from the source disk to the target disk...
