It's not difficult. Connect the external drive at any suitable connector of your computer (usually USB) and after some seconds you will notice a new (removable) hard disk at your computer. Move or copy at this disk whatever you want to move or copy. You can use either "drag and drop" or "copy - paste"

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

You have an issue - if my understanding is correct ' you are trying to restore your files, programs etc., to a new computer.

Backups are meant to restore the files and windows operating system etc. on the same computer the backup was created from. If you bought a new computer, it cannot do any restoration of the backup file from the hard drive.

if this is not the case, you need to provide more information for anyone to help.

My acer netbook "D" drive is nearly full


Hello,

Go to your drive C:, right-click, scroll down to "properties".

An option will pop-out. Look towards the down part and select Compress...... Then click "this"< then "OK".

This will compress your hard-drive and give you more space.

I hope you understand this.

Good luck.

What type of message do you get when you try to access them?

From your description, it sounds like you need to take "ownership" of the files/folders you are trying to open.

Hope this helps.

What software program will clone to an external drive?


It is nearly impossible to boot from external hard drive.  The main reason it that typically the computer need to have the OS loaded in order to support the external HD on the usb system.  My recommendation would be to return the external, purchase and internal and have a professional migrate your drive to the new one.

How to download songs on my mp3 player


Hi,

First plug it into the USB port on your computer. Wait for the operating system to detect it and install the appropriate driver for it.
Then go to My Computer and it'll be there as a Removable Disk. However, the first thing you have to do with a new Removable Device such as this is, right-click on the drive and Format the drive.
This will let you operating system understand and allocate space on the drive for your songs.
Then you can copy and paste any mp3 onto it. Some mp4's are protected though so they won't play on it.
Hope this helps
