Will this adapter transfer the data travelling through the thunderbolt connection through the USB 3.0 port?

I have a WD My Book 8TB Thunderbolt drive and would like to use it through a USB 3.0 connection. I need to know if I attach this adapter to the thunderbolt port on the back of my drive, connect a USB 3.0 cable to the adapter and plug that into the USB 3.0 port on my computer, will my computer read the drive?
