How to copy data from mac to external HD Drive

How do i copy data from mac book to an external hard disk drive?

Click on the Desktop area (the area where there are no open windows or Dock)
Look at the menu at the top next to the small Apple, it should say Finder
Click on the File men and select New Finder Window
Click on the File men and select New Finder Window (or stick in a disk, a USB, connect a hard drive and double click on the icon that appears on the Desktop)
Grab the Window by the top area by clicking and holding the mouse button down so both are side by side.
Click on the sidebar or open folders on the first window to get to where your files are
Click on the sidebar or open folders on the second window to get to where your destination is going to be
Click and drag the files or folder from one window to the other
If this occurs between volumes, it will copy
If this occurs on the same volume, it will move them
If you want to copy on the same volume, use the Finder > File > Duplicate and move the copy

    ok - since you'll be sharing it with a PC - connect it to your windows pc - then format from there - instead of NTFS format - choose exFAT.
    or, you can read the link below on how to do it in dos mode.

    How to download data from an external hd ?

    You need to copy the data onto your computer and transfer it via that (either via iTunes, or if the app that you want to transfer the data to supports, via wifi). Like the previous reply said, you can't do it directly without a computer being involved.

  • How to copy data from mac os x 10.4 to external drive

    I plan to replace OS X 10.4 by 10.6 on my iMac processor 1.83 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo and need to save the data to a G DRIVE.
    I was told to copy file by file into the G DRIVE but that takes a lot of time.
    Is there a better way?

    If the files you are copying are very big or a lot of them it may take some time. There's really no faster way to copy out to a USB drive. It will take the time it takes.

  • Transfer data from mac to external hard drive

    I am new to macs and am a bit lost.
    I have a made up external hard drive (internal hard drive in a case) - TOSHIBA MK8025GAS Media. It is connected to the mac via USB.
    I have been using it to transfer data from my pc to mac. The mac sees it and i can copy things from the hard drive to mac without problems. What i cannot do is to transfer from the mac onto the hard drive.
    I pulled up the mac info of the hard drive and its both writable and ejectable (Has two partitions). In the partitions the info states that the owners aren't enabled, cannot turn owners off and cannot be formatted. Also the S.M.A.R.T. status is not supported. Not usre what all this means!
    Can anyone tell me how to set it up to be able to transfer files to the hard drive from the mac and if it is possible to still transfer from windows to the hard drive?
    Thank you in advance.

    Thank you for the info.
    A friend also told me that i could erase the hard drive using the disk utility in ms dos format. I have tried this and then could also partition it afterwards.
    At the moment this seems to be working in both Mac and PC.
    One thing i have noticed is when i try to transfer disk images (over 4Gb), near the end i get an 'unexpected error occured' (error code 1309).
    From the internet:
    error -1309 fileBoundsErr: file's EOF offset mark or size is too big
    Whatever this means?

    Hi Ajay,
    let us consider you have to copy EKKO table to ZEKKO table
    1. In ABAP program define internal table based on EKKO
    <b>     eg: i_ekko</b>
    2. Select the data from EKKO to i_ekko
    <b>     eg: select * from ekko into table i_ekko.</b>
    3. insert into Z-TABLE from the internal table
    <b>     eg: INSERT EKKO FROM TABLE I_EKKO.
               COMMIT WORK.</b>
    <u>To insert in internal table you can use the following:</u>
    1. INSERT [wa INTO|INITIAL LINE INTO] itab [INDEX idx].
    2. INSERT [wa INTO|INITIAL LINE INTO] TABLE itab.
    3. INSERT LINES OF itab1 [FROM idx1] [TO idx2] INTO itab2 [INDEX idx3].

  • How to copy data from one BB to another via Desktop Manager

    I've got two BBs (8900 and 9300), both actively in use and with different data (contacts, memos, etc.) on them.
    I need to copy my tasks, memos and contacts from 8900 to 9300. I tried "switch phones" option, but it substitutes data, while I need to syncronize it, so that data from 8900 is added to what is currently is on the 9300. 
    Is it possible to do it via Desktop Manager? It seems there was somewhere an option "copy data from another BB", but I can't find it in the latest Desktop Manager version.

    You would need to use Desktop Mangaer to sync BB1 with a local PIM program (such as Outlook or Lotus Notes) to get the information off BB1. Then use Desktop Manager to sync BB2 with the same PIM program. 

  • How to copy data from one planning area to other planning area

    Hi ,
    I need to copy data from one planning area to other planning area, the MPOS for two planning areas are differant and  here my scenario is one planning area having extra key figures.
    First i need to release forecast data to CIP planning area and then,  i load the data from infocube  to MPS planning area and copy the data from CIP planning area. here both MPS and CIP planning areas having different MPOS .
    Please help me in this. Please give me the stepls i need to follow.
    Thanks in advance.
    Regards,
    Chandu

    Hi,
    You can use the transaction /sapapo/tscopy.
    In this you can configure your source plng area and destination plng area. You also have an option to map your KF. There is no problem if the MPOS are different as long as you are able to map the characteristics between the 2 MPOS.
    Alternatively, you can create an Infocube which shares common ground between the 2 planning areas and extract data from CIP plng area into the infocube and then copy teh data from infocube to MPS plng area using the the transaction /sapapo/tscube.
    Hope this helps.
    Thanks

  • How do I transfer photos from mac to external hard drive please

    How do I transfer photos to a external hard drive please?

    This answer may need to be expanded a bit. If your photos are in iPhoto and you are moving iPhoto's library to an external drive, once you've dragged the library to the external drive you'll need to let iPhoto know the library has moved. Hold the option key and double-click iPhoto (or click on the iPhoto icon on the Dock). You'll get a fileselector menu to select the library - point it to the external drive. Once you've established that the copied library has copied correctly you may drag the library on your computer to the trash and empty the trash.
    Warning: You do have a backup of your entire computer, right? Just in case something goes awry with the process having a backup is always a good idea.

  • How to recover data from non-mounting external drive?

    OK- here is the pinch:
    I have a Western Digital My Book 500GB Studio Edition which, though visible in Disk Utility, fails to mount, even when I try to do so via Disk Utility.  I have tried all the usual- unplugged, repowered-up, changed the order of Mac to external drive power-up/plug in etc etc.  It will not mount, end of.
    Then I changed the housing, in case the issue was with that.  No change.
    Then I had a friend use his PC's software to recover the data and he pulled off what appears to be ALL of it (it was close on being the 500GB as the drive was full) but it is not usuable and the Final Cut Pro and iMovie files I am needing to recover, appear to have been "downgraded" to MPEGs and MP4s (how IS that even possible?!) with a few MOVs of which the bulk are unreadable.  Oddly the clips are transitions only- no full three and a half minute (most of them are of music, songs of about that length) clips ever.
    So- is there any chance that I can get software which will let me recover the content of the drive in a format which my MacBook Pro can use/understand?  Or is it a lost cause?
    I had done some research on the topic here and found one thread which mentioned accessing the drive via the "Terminal" (sounds wonderful, if I knew what it was and how to use it) and correcting a read and write setting, copying its content over to the hard drive (well- that is not possible as I have a smaller internal than that drive is but no never mind) and getting the non-mounting drive to once more mount.
    Could that ^ be something worth pursuing?  I cannot ask on the thread as it is from 2006 and, obviously, archived.
    Hoping for some good news but am resigned almost.
    Thank you for reading!

    Did you try using a powered USB hub?
    Mac's now cut off port powered drives if they draw too much current.
    The external drive is a powered SATA, currently residing in a powered SATA to USB housing, no extensions.  No, the drive is actually just not supported anymore and was not mountable before.
    Also use the Mac version of Data Rescue for file recovery, it knows the Mac file formats better than PC file format recovery.
    I cannot recover anything with a Mac because the Mac will not read it.  It is not supported due to something my friend did with his PC:
    This is only since he had a go at recovery.  Before then it was supported and appeared fine- just not mountable.
    Obviously what happened is it took the MPEG portions of the Mac files as it understood that and discarded the rest.
    Yes, I gathered that and explained as much to him.  It discarded the entire 120GB FCPro project file I kind of would like to recover. 
    Not sure what now...
    You had mentioned cloning/imaging etc. which you edited out.  Could that be something which can be done with a PC (I am not a PC user but I guess I could have a go) and then I use said image on the Mac to copy the bits I need to transfer to the Mac-formatted storage device?  Or- with a different Mac?  Not sure why that would make a difference but I am happy to try anything! 
    Thank you to you both christopher rigby1 and ds store- means a lot not to be completely up the creek without a paddle.  I just wish that I had not been overwhelmed by the offer of assistance from a PC user and had had more of a go myself.  I suspect it would not be this difficult now.
