How can I transfer backed up Mac files to a PC without a Mac

I killed my MacBook Pro and I cannot afford at this time to get a new one or fix the current one. I have Time Capsule with a good backup of my files.  Can I transfer those files (pics & documents) to a PC without a working Mac ? 

No, not if the backup is Time Machine..
Ask a friend to help you .. who has a mac.. and you can then open the TM backup and grab your files and copy them across the network.. although buying a USB drive would be better.

    I was hopeful I could use home sharing to sync my iTunes libraries,
    Unfortunately, you can only stream content to your iOS devices via home sharing (not sync it).
    I'd have a check through the following user tip instead:

    You can't restore to a backup that was taken on a device which has a higher version of iOS than on your iPad, you will have to update your iPad to 8.1.3 to be able to restore to it
    You should be able to update your iPad via Settings > General > Software Update

  • How can I transfer a big .pdf file e.g. 9 MB from my Macintosh Performa 5200 and its OS 8.1 to an USB-flash drive?

    How can I transfer a big .pdf file e.g. 9 MB from my Macintosh Performa 5200 and its OS 8.1 to an USB flash drive? E.g. is there any adapter available in order to connect the SCSI with USB? Or is it better to use a compression software and transfer it to 10 3,5" floppy discs?
    Thank you
    Emanuel

    Hello Emanuel,
    The Performa 5200CD did not have built-in Ethernet as standard, so unless an Ethernet card (or an external SCSI or LocalTalk-to-Ethernet adapter) has been added, that method would not be available in this case.
    Your suggestion involving compression software (such as an appropriate version of StuffIt) with segmenting capabilities could of course be one alternative.
    If you have an internal or external modem for the Performa, another way could be to use the telephone lines for transfers. A communications program would have to be used on both sides (for example, ZTerm or the communications section of ClarisWorks on the Performa).
    It is even possible to connect two serial modems directly. A simple line simulator (in principle, a 9 V battery in series with a 680 ohm resistor in one of the leads in an RJ-11 to RJ-11 cable), which can be built in a couple of minutes, is sometimes needed. Do NOT use a line simulator for units connected to the public telephone network.
    Yet another solution could be a null-modem transfer to a PC with a (DB-9M) serial port. This would require a null-modem cable (can be designed by combining a Macintosh modem cable (MiniDIN-8M to DB-25M) with a normal PC-style (DB-25F to DB-9F) null-modem cable . HyperTerminal or another communications program can be used on the PC.
    What do you have to work with (other computers/models/platforms)? Is this a one-time transfer, or do you plan to send additional files later? Is the intention to continue to use the Performa 5200?

  • How can I transfer photos from my iphone to my computer without emailing each one to myself

    how can I transfer photos from my iphone to my computer without emailing each one to myself, and I thought they would be in icloud but I can't find them

    Pics taken with the iphone are imported to your computer as with any other digital camera ( as explained in the manual).
    Pics synced to your iphone from your computer should still be on the computer.

  • How can I transfer part of iPhoto files from my hard drive of iMac to free up  my hard drive which is 95% full

    My IMAC 24" Early 2008, with Hard Drive of 500 is running out of Memory, down to 25 MGHz. Since I have large collection of photographs in my IPhoto, with fair numbers in raw forms, I presume most of the memory is taken by them. I am unable to find weather that is the cause of low memory, and if it is so,  how can I transfer part of them into external hard drive to free up the space. Help into yhe matter will be appreciated. Thanks

    Make sure the drive is formatted Mac OS Extended (Journaled)
    1. Quit iPhoto
    2. Copy the iPhoto Library from your Pictures Folder to the External Disk.
    Now you have two full versions of the Library.
    3. On the Internal library, trash the Events you don't want there
    Now you have a full copy of the Library on the External and a smaller subset on the Internal
    Some Notes:
    As a general rule: when deleting photos do them in batches of about 100 at a time. iPhoto can baulk at trashing large numbers at one go.
    You can choose which Library to open: Hold down the option (or alt) key key and launch iPhoto. From the resulting menu select 'Choose Library'
    You can keep the Library on the external updated with new imports using iPhoto Library Manager

  • HT1766 How can I transfer music from iphone 4 to iphone 4s without using computer syncying or icloud?

    I have an iphone 4 with music downloaded from my Macbook which was originally downloaded from CDs.  I now have an iphone 4s that will not sync with my old Macbook because it does not have the most recent version of itunes.  Macbook is too old for new itunes.  I want to transfer music on iphone 4 to iphone 4s.  icloud will only transfer music to 4s that was originally purchsed through itunes and will not transfer CD music from iphone 4.  How can I transfer this music to my new phone?

    The Mac version of the iPhone PC suite supports to backup iPhone music to PC and iTunes with ID3 Tag Info preserved. Try it.

  • How can I transfer my edited RAW files to a flash drive?

    I have 30 RAW files (NEF) from a holiday party that I have edited, and would like to give to a friend for further editing. We both work on Macs. I selected the 30 photos in Bridge, went to "Copy to" and selected the flash drive. The raw files along with their xmp files show up. But unfortunately when I bring up the files on the flash drive using the "View as Cover Flow" option in Preview, they show up in the original RAW form - as if I'd just downloaded them off my camera again - without edits.
    Many people have mentioned exporting and DNG conversion. With regard to the first: when I select photos, right click, and go to "export to" my only option is "hard drive". Once I select that, nothing appears to happen. No new folders or files seem to appear in my hard drive. With regard to the second: I am nervous about losing information via the DNG conversion. I want to make sure my friend has all the information pertaining to each photo in the event that she needs to do a more significant round of second edits.
    How can I achieve this transfer? Also, should the fact that my friend plans on using Lightroom for edits bear any significance on my decisions? Thank you...

    The Save as DNG is not in Bridge, It is only available in Camera Raw.
    Open your file in ACR, at the lower left click the SAVE IMAGE button. From there you can select several different formats.
    Select DNG and adjust the options. You can also embed the original raw file inside the DNG (but gives larger file size)
    It's not clear if you are opening the files directly from the flash drive or saving them first to the hard drive.
    I would recommend always saving files to the hard drive, eject the flash drive, and then open from there rather than directly from flash drive
    We've all had flash drives that go bad or act wonky.
    Not trying to work on the files while they still reside on the flash drive is just one less problem to worry about.
    Good Luck

  • How can I transfer music from Mac to iPhone WITHOUT iTunes?

    I'd like to transfer (not sync, just transfer) songs from my Mac to my iPhone. How can I do this without going through iTunes software?
    I know there was another software I used to do this with... something like iFun or iExplorer; but neither of those will transfer from iPhone to Mac. I've searched the web several times for such software, came up empty.

    "The only reason it would delete songs on your phone that you had no physical copy of would be if you tried to sync it with a different iTunes library."
    Yes, I know that. That's why I mentioned I have two computers. I also know you can redownload songs from iTunes. The songs don't come from iTunes. I don't know why you wish to devolve my query into a legal battle (like I'm sure you're a copyright lawyer for the RIAA) but number one, who said they were copyrighted songs? Not me. Number two, even if they were, yes the copies are mine if I choose to make copies. At least in my country, that's the case. That fact does not change if I lose the original, if the original source is unplayable, or if it burned up in a fire. Are you an international copyright attorney too? If so, you're not a very good one. And I posted a simple query. I didn't post it to be told to buy a different phone. If you can't answer the query, then why are you here? Just to argue for iTunes and copyrights? I already mentioned that there is software that exists to do what I want, so I obviously do not need to buy another phone. I just want better software at this point.

  • How can I transfer an adobe reader file to Microsoft word?

    I have Windows Vista on my machine. I really need to transfer an Adobe reader file into Microsoft word or at least be able to type inside of Adobe. Just wondering how can I do this task or am I just not able to?
    Any help or suggestions out there..?

    That would require using Adobe Acrobat. It can create Word docs from PDF's.
    The bad news is, most of the time it doesn't do a very good job at it.
    With Acrobat, you could also add form fields that you can fill in which would be much better.
